    I cannot for the life of me ID this breed... 5 toes, feathery feet, black spots on head, back, and some black on its wings. Very friendly Lil guy/gal though :) any thought?

    What type of comb does it have? I'd guess faverolles but they don't generally have black spots in their down. But that would be what best fits your description aside from that.

    Then I'm going to go with faverolles. It's the only breed that has a single comb, five toes, feathered legs, a beard and muffs like your chick.

    x2 on Faverolles...the 5 toes, beard, single comb, make that hard to be something else.

    Thanks everyone. My fiance thought it may be a Cochin. My first guess was a fav, but I was unsure. [​IMG]

    Trust yourself. It's a Faverolles, likely a cockerel.

    Donrae...roo likely....is that due to the black coming in on the wing tips? Female Salmon Faverolles are more brown tipped (?)
