    Hi guys, these little ones are 4 weeks old, so still a little young for gender I know, but a few seem to be showing their genders already! I'm also interested in the possible crosses. Really I just love the guessing game!

    I will post the pics separately since my phone keeps crashing.

    What are the possible breeds in the cross? Whatever the cross, it looks like a cockerel.

    Wyandottes7, thanks for the reply. I'm really net certain what the options are. My mother bought the eggs from a local guy, he claimed to have cream legbars, rescued battery hens, Wyandottes and "mixed bantams". I have no idea if mixed bantams means cross breeds or different pure breeds though, and since then we have found that he may also be mixing his crosses from previous years in. It is also highly likely that he has no idea what his birds ancually are anyway! (Last year another local "breeder" sold mum some cream legbars, only one survived to adulthood and she looks just like my plain old black sex link, and lays brown eggs!

    It is probably a mixed breed, and appears to be a cockerel.

    *ping. Which causes me to hit reply or the main forum button. Or a pop up ad. Not fun.

    "Sassy" probably male. Hen also cream legbar cross or cream legbar. Also has feathered feet but an odd (V?) Comb. Don't have an up to date pic of the comb but will upload one from when I was home last week
    (wrong pic again! I give up! Will try and post the pic in the morning)
