    This chicken is super fast so its hard to get a pic where its not moving.
    there's not one curved tail feather or saddle I'm pretty sure its a hen... but breed?

    Also have what I'm sure is a roo with broken toes I think its from the egg as he functions well. He's a sweetie.
    This is leonard

    I don't have a clue what breed she is but I think Einstein is the perfect name for her- she looks like the love child of Albert Einstein and an Egyptian vulture! I think she's adorable :)

    Wow! I dunno but she/he is sure awesome looking! No eggs yet? How old is it? Very interesting cross of some kind. The feathers do look pointy to me but I'm sure someone with more experience will help you out soon. [​IMG] And Leonard is a beauty too. Good Luck!

    Einstein's hackle feathers seem to be very pointed. I can't see the saddle feathers (right in front of the tail) are those slender and pointy? Does Einstein have a beard and muff? What about extra toes?

    I took better photos.. Einsteins back is lacking of feathers due to a rooster I'm assuming.. but the feathers that are there are verry rounded and fluffy.
    the feathers are weird..

    Thinking she may be part of the same breed as leonard.. as leonard has the same style of feathers. - solid in the middle, wispy edges...
