    I have LF Cochin x Bantam Sultan chicks. 2 are at the ugly stage right now. The roo was a splash - out of 3 chicks 3 are splash and 1 is blue. They are just getting their mohawks now. They have gigantic feathered feet and Vulture hocks! Kinda cute.

    Tolbunt Polish x Black Copper Marans. Probably my weirdest cross that I have [​IMG] I've also had Shamo x Araucana (one even had tufts!) but they got sold or eaten by a cat. The rest of my mixes have been done before by others at one point or another in time.

    Holy smokes! This is one funky chicken! Love it! I've had polish crosses before that had a comb like that.

    Technically a Polish cross shouldn't have a comb like that unless it actually splits in two in the back, forming a "butterfly" appearance, but, I'll admit - The Tolbunt who fathered this handsome guy has a single comb gene. Bad trait to carry, but, I don't think there's a perfect or near perfect Tolbunt Polish out there. . . .


    What I think really makes this guy stand out, beside his gold lacing and enormous and well-kept tail, are his feathered shanks. They're quite fluffy for a bird who has only one parent with feathered legs, and even the parent wasn't as fluffy as a Brahma or Cochin.
