    I love these kinds of games. Can you tell us if he is just any f1 of crossing two breeds or how many parental breeds were involed ?

    For now I will say RIR X Buff Brahma ???????
     
  3. -pout-
    chicken snob.

    you got the crosses right
    first generation
    guess which parent was which breed then? (i know 50/50 right?)


    on another note. would there be an interest if i worked on creating nice red colored brahmas?
    or would milli or speckled sussex colorations be more desired?

    I got another mutt that would be harder to trace, still loading pics.
     
  4. alright got another one:

    it is a second generation. crossed. i believe its a hen.
    i can post front view angle if needed...
    good luck.

    Quote:Muhahaha Told you I love these kind games. And I'll say a RIR roo on Brahma hen ??? But like you said, theres nothing to figure out there, just a 50 50 guess.

    I personally would LOVE some solid Black L F Brahmas. But for what you asked, typically mille fleur ( mottled Buff columbian) would be easiest. And if you did make the Mottled Red Columbian ones ( Speck Suss color) then you would most likely get the the nice solid reds in route to the mottled reds, all three would be awesome though.
     
  6. no one can guess the breeds the other chicken is?

    Quote:Yeah it is a hen BTW.

    I'm pretty sure there is some silkie in there and silkie crosses can be buggers to guess what they are unless you know, I have had all kinds of Silkie crosses and they all inherit silkie traits differently. I'll think about it a while or see if anyone else gets it.

    Quote:That's a poor photo as I cannot see if its legs truly are feathered or what color they are, but I'm going on Brahma x Polish, as it has no fifth toe, no dark skin, a golden incomplete Columbian color, and a smooth face.

    alright, here is a better image of it. this one is alot more flighty, so pics were hard to snag.
