    I hatched this little roo out with a few other bantam eggs from a breeder with a variety of bantam breeds... I told him to send me a variety of eggs... He was the only roo. He is feather footed, I thought that he may be a cochin but I couldn't I.D. by color...
    We call em Rufus...

    I see no brahma in him (other than lighter foot feathering). Even a first generation brahma cross should have a pea comb, which he clearly does not. Also, he looks to have really short legs and pink skin.

    Quote:My daughter realized that very point this morning! No pea comb... no brahma in the mix! You guys know how this stuff goes... "Oh I sell full blooded breeds of Bantams." I respond, "Well then, just send me a mix of your breeds." And wat u get is a hatch of "mixed breeds" All of their birds are prolly walking around in the yard as one big mixed up flock... and They're "advertised" as full blooded... Yeah... he's full blooded "Chicken" with feathered feet, yellow skin and a crow! [​IMG]
    Oh well... Rufus is our "mystery" bird! [​IMG]
