    Do you know that it is a pure breed? Or is it a cross breed?

    Looks to be feather legged and rose combed. So its very likely a crossbred. I'd say likely a Wyandotte and Cochin cross.

    Agree it looks like a mix. Most feather legged breeds aren't production bred birds, so they're not very likely to be the hens in a flock where someone is selling eggs. Likely the rooster is feather legged. I can't tell if it's a pea or rose comb, but I'm very willing to accept the word of someone who has better vision than I do [​IMG].

    Maybe post again around 6ish weeks, we may have a better idea of the mix from the feather coloring then.
