    I got him from the bantam straight run bin. The farm & ranch store I got him from gets their chicks supplied by Ideal Poultry. As a chick he was completely silver with black eyes and lightly feathered legs. I have my thoughts on the breed mix, but I wanted to know what you guys came up with. [​IMG]

    It's hard to see in the picture but he does have five toes on each foot. And the underside of his feet are pink!

    Quote:Thank you! I'm definitely keeping him to add some color to my black bantam population. Plus he's just lovely to have. [​IMG] He's not flighty, but doesn't like to be touched or held.

    Silkie/BR cross possibly. That pouf looks pretty familiar-three of my girls have it. They're Cochin/Silkie x BR. And his mother was the Barred Rock, I think, since in all my BR crosses where the mother was the BR, the cockerels got barring and the pullets didn't.

    I say polish got him the head crest, and Cochin got him the body and leg feathers.

    Edit: 5th toe. I say silkie too in that case.

    I was thinking his coloring was called crele? Or no?

    If that boy came from Ideal Poultry then they got some 'splainin' to do! Geez, such an obvious mixed breed! On the other hand, maybe someone just put a chick in the bin and traded for one they really wanted, LOL. Never know!
