    I'm enjoying very much reading on this forum the past few days, very informant, thank you!

    I would like to share a photo[​IMG] of a cockerel called Abraham we adopted from our local SPCA yesterday, thought it would help our 6 ex-bat hens to have some male company and hopefully sort out the 2 bullies ... we are new to adopting hens as have had them for 10 weeks now ... very much enjoying the "little monkeys"! I would like to know his breed please if you can help ... thought he was a Cuckoo Marans? He has flecks of irridecent green and also recently realised that there are several very similar looking breeds. Also, I've noticed he has a small toe at the side of his foot as well as the main 4 toes, I guess this is usual? Many thanks for any responses and keep up the fantastic forum! :)

    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us.

    Abraham is a handsome fellow.

    Likely someone will offer you a breed ID here, but if not, then post his pic under the "what breed,gender" forum for more opines.

    He looks so much like my Barred Rock except for the leg/foot colors - but I'm sure my gal is not a pure breed.

    Greetings, Yorkshire lass, and :welcome! Great to have you with us! I agree with sunflour - Abraham is indeed a looker! The folks in the 'What Breed' Forum should be able to help you out. Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC! :)

    Nay lass, I'm from Wakey - Barsnley? thats a bit harsh [​IMG]

    Sorry, I pants at breeds as we don't really have anything but commercial stuff here in Nairobi. As Sunflour suggests, maybe the breed / gender forum is the best place to get more advice -

    There's a UK thread that you may wish to join - nice bunch of peeps - https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/655508/uk-member-please-say-hi/890
