    Hi everyone!
    Does anyone know what kind of chicken my pet chicken "Dixie" might be?[​IMG]

    Well, 'he' looks like a mix from the little I can see, but need to see the comb and legs as well to get a better idea. I do believe that Dixie is a cockerel though, as those look very much like saddle feathers at the base of the tail... ETA: I could be mistaken, hackle feathers look kinda rounded... Anyways, gorgeous bird!!! :D

    Pretty bird! Without a better photo, though, I'm not sure what he/she is.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] We're glad to have you.

    We'll need a better photo to determine what "Dixie" is. I'll be happy to help, whenever you can get a photo up!

    I, too, will be looking forward to more photos - but am leaning cockerel from what looks like male saddle feathering and some nice, dark, glossy patches of color showing through. How old is Dixie?
