i dont see anything that would indacate a mix but then again that gene could be so far back that he doesnt show his mix or it could just be a genitic thing

He is a great roo always wondered what he is crossed with. I was told when I bought him as a day old that he was just hatched from random eggs collected alot cochins were in there .

I would bet that he has Faverolle in his lineage. That 5th toe is really long and extended nearly straight back as in Faverolles. There is no indication of a crest so that rules out Silkies and Sultans and Houdans (other 5 toed breeds). The only other possibility that I can think of is Dorkins. They have long 5th toes and no crest, so that would work.

I think he's probly crossed with a dorking or maybe a Faverolles.

5 toes is a dominate trait, if I remember, so a parent couldn't have been a carrier with 4 toes, it would have had to have 5 toes.
