    This is my only chicken so far. He is two years old and never crows, nor bothers hens and eats practically nothing. [​IMG]
    This spring he will be joined by more active chickens.
    Can anyone tell me what breed he is based on?

    Quote:With the help of some acrylic paint and a reference photo I did.

    The only time he's attacked me was during a high wind when I was trying to get the window he's painted on closed. Nipped my fingers pretty good!

    Quote:I think you are right, that looks just like him. I didn't know about breeds two years ago, and I may have actually used more then one picture reference. I don't really remember.

    Welsummer was my guess, too.

    love it! Welsummer because of the yellow legs. Otherwise he does resemble a Black Copper Marans (though not the french standard ie: feathered feet)
