    Hi there,
    we were hoping for some help with a couple of our chickens[​IMG]
    this is our 17 week old cockerel which we thought was a white leghorn, but he has a few splashes of brown and some black in the tail-is he just poor quality or a cross? don't mind either way as he's such a character!

    I'm guessing the cockerel is a cross - heavy on leghorn blood, and I believe the Sumatra is a pullet.
