    I think it's an African cross, the knob isn't,right,should have almost a double knob, higher and taller,also feathering doesn't quite right.

    Thanks Robin. I think he is a toulouse/african cross. I've never seen a topulouse with a dewlap before. I am going to try and find an african hen for him. A friend out here has tuffted buffs, I am hoping to get some of those this spring to go with the princess!

    Have to agree with others and looks like a Toulouse x African.

    Yes they do come in Buff and although they're scarce there's many more in the USA than the UK where there's only a handful of breeders.

    Here's a picture of one of our females.
