    Here is my roo Valiant, he has feathered legs and his tail looks like a chochin, he has a beard and is a lovely rooster, takes care of the chicks of his favourite Orpington, she is twice his size. Can anyone tell me what he is?

    Does he have 5 toes on each foot? If so he is a Faverolle cross.

    I also think he's a Faverolles, not a Cochin.

    I'm trying to catch him to count his toes but he's fast! His tail feathers look all neat and tidy like a Cochin, you can't tell from the picture though, but he wouldn't stand still for me to get a good shot. I looked up Faverolles and their tail feathers are long, his isn't at all which is why I thought maybe some sort of Cochin mix.

    I'll try to catch him and count his toes...

    Did you read @sourland's post? Faverolle mix. He's a mixed breed with some Faverolle in his background. He doesn't match a purebred Salmon Faverolle, but he's got enough of the breed characteristics, that it's a logical conclusion that there is some Faverolle in his pedigree.

    I caught him, he has 4 toes and his spurs are not yet fully formed so he's young. Maybe his tail will get longer? Does that mean that he is all Salmon Faverolle?
