    I LOVE this big fluffy roo...but what breed is he? I can't find any pics that look like him. He is creamy, speckled, has feathered feet. He is very docile and has a quiet crow, but is an attention hog..as you can see from the pics.

    I think my black beauty in the background is an Ameraucana. He's got a lovely little beard & black legs & feet. Its hard to get a picture of him...because a certain camera hog is always blocking my view.

    Any input would be so welcomed. I am looking into getting ladies for them in the spring...at least for the big fluffy roo. We might say goodbye to the darker one.

    He is a mixed breed rooster, but a very pretty one.

    Thank you! Any ideas on what might be going into that mix? What about the dark roo? Mixed as well?

    I am brand to chickens. Had these boys since October. I'm not really clear on the breeding - are they like mutts? :)

    The dark rooster is an Easter Egger, which is basically a mixed breed of chicken that lays (at least the hens do) colored eggs (blue, green, etc.). The light rooster is a mixed breed, probably with Cochin in him.

    Thanks Everybody!

    I will be looking to get some hens...prob white cochin & at least one other kind...in the spring. Hope the boys can keep the peace. They are very pretty & I'd like to keep them both, if I can.
