Is there such a breed? If so lets see pics....

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by 4hooves&featheredfriends, Aug 8, 2009.

  1. I purchased 4 feather footed bantams from a local feed & tack store and two are clearly light brahmas; one is a pheasant cochin of a pretty gray and dull black....but the 4th girls has EE coloring, fuzzy cheeks and gray legs.

    Is there a feather-footed EE? Or what is she? From a hatchery I would think it is a straight breed(of course not show quality-but not a mutt).....

    Pics to come tomorrow, but please post if you know of this breed.

    There are no pheasant cochin, unless someone somehow crossed breed them together. [​IMG]

    If that is even possible.​

    I think she's referring to the color? Couldn't it be a Cochin EE cross?
     
  4. Yes her color is partridge. Would a hatchery sell a cross in there bantam collection?

    The one with feathered blue legs, beard and muff, and single comb sounds like a mille fluer d'uccle.

  9. Thanks on the d'uccle call ....I thought that they had to have a mix of white in with the gold and black/drk brown? No?

    I will post a pic of my little beauty later today....thanks for your help. Sorry to throw you off Shay20 with the new genetic wonder of a partridge/cochin X [​IMG] - should have been more clear.
