    I have one Rhode Island Red rooster with two other breeds, Silkie and black australorps. I was wondering if you guys would know what any potential cross breeds would look like?

    Well you can definitely rule out any "feather-feet" breed due to the lack of feathers on their feet. Do you know if they're all LF or bantam?

    what are Lfs? They were not bantams I no that. .. we got buff orphingtons a aranucana and Columbian rocks and that one out of the bin. I think one said dark cross or something like that but it wasn't dark cross which I think is what she is.

    LF stands for large fowl. Meaning any other breed other bantam. She might be a sex link

    oh well than she's a large fowl I pretty sure. On the sign on the bin it did not say sex links it said some king of cross I think and buff orphingtons,Columbian rocks,aranucanas, guineas, and two others.

    Well it appears that you have a mystery breed. That will be very exciting to see grow up. Within 6-8 weeks I would imagine that you would be able to tell what kind of chick it is.
