    edford, you have a very striking looking rooster. I think he deserves his very own breed catagory. Let's see...... ummm......... he looks like a.............. I got it!! He is a Harlequin Dartmouth Green !!!!!!!! [​IMG]
     
  5. yepp hes definitely a strange one, i save him from being eaten lol and when i seen him from afar i thought cochin to but hes kinda tall i actually have a standard cochin roo and he dwarfs him height wise by far and is a touch wider so maybe a mix but i just dont know either way he has 9 new black sex linked girlfriends and will never be eaten lol. i went to pic up some hens and asked why he was isolated the man said im gonna eat him, i said name your price he said pay for all 7 hens (which are all his offspring) and ill give him to you so now hes cock of the roost lol.
     
  6. the man told me he was hatched spring 2012 but idk for shure.

    Baymule! I've missed your breed names!!!

    Op, look up a birchen Marans and see if you think that's your boy. His color isn't "good" for a birchen, too much leakage, but that could fit the size and feathered legs.
     
  8. Very much like the maran in composure and facial features mines just thicker and a touch more feathers on his legs, maybe cochin maran cross? thanks for the help btw

    Nice to know my weird sense of humor has delighted someone. I'll try to get on here more often and come up with more goof-ball breed names! [​IMG]
