  1. ok so i know these are mixes...but i thought the one was a purebred sumatra. now i'm not sure...it's face is a little too fuzzy i think.

    here's the boy (right?) but he has feathered feet so he's a mix.


    the one in the back is the same in the pic above. and the black one in front i thought was a purebred but its face is different. what do you think? i also think this ones a girl.



    the mother has a sleek face like the boy so i was thinking i have both mixes? ugh. lol. whats your opinion?? and dont worry she's not in this cage anymore, she's in my chicken mansion of a coop haha.

    I'm no expert, but I would say definitely a mix! Feathered feet is a dead give-away, but so is the rest of her feathering. It just doesn't look like my Sumatras' feathers. Mine are much more sleek looking. Yours seem rounder - like there's Cochin in there somewhere. I will try to post a pic if I can find my camera.

    And judging from the tail feathers, I'm thinking your boy might be a girl.
  3. thanks! oh my goodness maybe it is a cochin mix haha. well that should be interesting when it grows up...

    The mother is beautiful and I am thinking the dad might be a silkie with the head feathers, the comb, and the dark eyes and beak and comb
