HELP Is this a breed or barn yard mutt?????

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by ThePamperedPullet, Oct 26, 2008.

    We have two of these roo's. They are about 6 months old and just starting to crow. One is white on black with a bit of feathered foot. The other is a cream yellow on black and no feathered feet but has a bit of a beard. I believe that some where in my pea brain I have seen a pic of a breed something close to this but I have looked at so many chickens for so long that they all seem to look familiar.
    Any Ideas????

    I'm no expert but I have two fairly educated guesses:

    1. SLW

    I would guess it's a cross. SLW don't have feathered feet and have lacing on the chest.

    Quote:I didn't even notice the feathers. So yeah, it probably a mix.

    Looks like it has some game in his background, and obviously some feather footed breed. Do you have pics of the other one?

    They could have some Faverolle in them if they're from the same batch, that would explain one with feathered legs and the other with the beard.

    He looks like he could be a cousin to my dark brahma roo.

    It looks like my Dark Brahma roo did when he was young, but ya, no feathered legs. I'd say its definitely a cross with that some where. Mix or not, he's still pretty. [​IMG]

    Probably a mix, but I have this Iowa Blue that looks similar without the feathered feet.
