    Mine is huge too. His hackles have a red tinge to them. Is that normal? By the way, Rodriguiez, your roo is beautiful. More pics, please, if anyone has some. thanks again.

    It happens sometimes, usually it's a sign of a mixed breeding, but it could just be that red-base shows up more in that line of birds.

    Do you have any photos of him???

    Oh...and thank you! [​IMG]

    :/No, no pics yet. I will try to get some tomorrow (if I can fit him in the viewfinder) He was gong to be part of my freeranging flock at the deer camp, but I kinda done got partial to him. His crow is luoder than the bantam roo I had, but lower pitched. Shouldnt get any complaints from the neighbors...Hopefully.[​IMG]

    Well, I got a pic of him. Is he a Langshan? Langshan or not, he is beautiful.

    I think you have a Partridge Cochin. But I could be wrong. If he is Langshan he is mixed. [​IMG]

    Nope...not a Langshan...but you "could" get a good start on a new Partridge Langshan there! lol!

    I agree with Partridge Cochin, he won't have the "fluff" that a well-bred one will have, but he is typical of a hatchery type partridge Cochin.
