    I picked this one up from a relative the other day thinking I had something special, but I can't find it in any of my books!

    The hen looks like a game hen. If her legs are green, then shes a hatch. They look like they are.

    The little rooster-- I have no idea!! LOL He's certainly different though. I agree about the hen. Looks like a game hen. I want some game chickens later on. They are wonderful mothers!!

    The little rooster has a kind of rose comb , but really big- Is it possible he is part seabright and maybe bantam cornish? Don't know , But looks like he's wearing a crown LOL

    The little guy certainly has a unique look. He is a Serama mix (probably with a Black Rose Comb or Rose comb Dutch Bantam).

    The hen is an American Game Fowl.

    I remember seeing a breed of chicken that had huge rosecombs... I can't remember the name. It was something like Crowned or something..
