    From the looks of it I would say all of the above guesses are wrong. Thats just my guess. It is crossed with something that has feathered feet because this bird has slight feet feathering. It also looks to have pale leg color and if im not mistaken 5 toes? It is a possibility to be a Silkie cross, even more so with the crest and beard he has. None the less, he is a very pretty bird no matter the cross tt took to make him.

    I would have to also say that he probably has some Silkie in him.... all that barring over to the right is mesmerizing! ((chicken ADD [​IMG] ))

    It doesn't look like a purebred to me. What kind of comb does it have? Does it have an extra toe? Is it a bantam or a standard?
