    Does the father have feathers on his feet? I noticed his son does

    He looks like he's got a lot of black spots on his comb and wattles... possibly frostbite? If it isn't frostbite, I'd be a little concerned...

    The first is a mutt, I'm fairly sure. Weird coloration, though pretty.

    The second could be an EE or a Faverolle cross.

    the father has feather feet

    and the black on the comb and wattle was from him getting in the pen with my laying flock i have 2 rir roosters and a copper maran rooster that gave him a run for his money (it was my fault i left the pen door open) [​IMG]

    Maybe he's a cochin/game cross? How big is he?

    He's what I call a barnyard mix. Enjoy him for what he is.
