    I have some barred socks and silkies and see the resemblance. I'm not a chicken breed expert though so I can't tell you for sure, but he sure is handsome!

    Thank you... though he is handsome, he's the absolute craziest chicken I've ever encountered. I know chickens aren't known for their intelligence, but.... this one is a complete head-case! [​IMG]

    I doubt he has either silkie or Rock in him.
    Silkie blood would give black skin, not a straight comb, a crest and five toes.
    A Rock would have a very different body shape, no feathered legs, yellow skin.

    His barring shows he's a mixed breed bird, he could have Cochin or maybe Marans, something like that.
