I read your other posts about Lucky, that's the same chicken as the one you posted on this thread right? Because if he is you said that he was a silkie and Welsummer mix.

I was hoping to get some discussion on the Redcap theory because he appears to have a great deal of the coloration and comb - which I find interesting. The geneticists among us might tell us why, but I've recently seen 4 or 5 pictures of Redcaps that are dead ringers for Lucky - above the knees anyway...

I was planning on testing my local fair judges by entering him as a Redcap to see what they think. Fairs are certainly not like true exhibition and Redcaps points are judged 45% weighted to the comb from what I understand. If coloration, weight, and structure were within Redcap specs, I'm wondering if they'd catch the toes and disqualify.

Well I'm a good searcher lol.

I don't know much about chicken genetics but from the pictures I have noticed that a redcap's comb is a modified rosecomb, I've also noticed that some Dominiques have them too.
