    Quote:Dude you got me on that one!!! Dad was either a RIR, an Ameraucana or a Silkie, and mom could have been anything, most likely a Bo of white leghorn because of the color. My birds are all mixed, with the exception of the new OEG's, and after the massacre, I just grabbed eggs and set them in hopes of replacing Roadie. He was a beautiful RIR roo. RIP.

    Not a Silkie cross - Does it have a single or rose comb? [​IMG] . . . Or a walnut comb? (looks folded and weird at this age )
