    I just recently brought home a multi colored mystery roo. Big beautiful black fan tail, has some white wing feathers, Greenish black bare legs, tall single comb, not much in the way of wattles, black ear tufts, white ears, brown eyes....really nice boy, his crow sounds scratchy like he has a sore throat. What could he be? I'll try to get some pictures of him this afternoon.

    Thanks.

    Salmon Faverolles was my first thought as far as color/general conformation. But he has clean slate legs and I can't see 5 toes. Possibly a mix with Salmon Faverolles. He's a beaut! [​IMG]
