    So I'm new to this whole thing... I just got a Barred Rock Pullet, a Black Sex Link Pullet, and a Sultan Cockerel. I also am raising 3 chicks, 1- Brahma & 2- Speckled Sussex. Now I got the Sultan for his beautiful breed & feathered feet. I have never seen these mixed before but was hoping someone had some photos of what a Pure Sultan might look like if mixed with any of the above listed breeds. I love my Roo btw, he wakes me up at 6/ 6:30am with the most unique crow I've ever heard. He sounds more like a wild bird at sunrise, but alot louder. He was very easy to introduct to my hens & as soon as the chicks are old enough (they are less than 1 week now), then I will be introducing them & seeing what comes of the neat mixes. But I would love to get some ideas on what I'm looking forward to [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Thanks everyone for any input
