    A friend of mine calls me on the phone and says, "This is going to sound strange but my husband and I just caught this chicken in the middle of the road....downtown!" " can you take it?" So I told her bring it over, Ill see if i can find him a new home. Well, once I opened the kennel i thought to myself , oh, an OEGB. Cute. But as soon as I took him out it became very obvious that he was not an OEGB. He is much longer on the topside and has an incredibly long, low tail and feathers on his feet. I thought maybe Sumatra or something like that but none of them have the feathered feet like he has. Anyone have any Idea? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think so too. I have looked at alot of pictures and he looks like one of the sumatra breed types crossed with something low slung and feather footed.

    Yeay. I like pheonix. They are BEAUTIFUL! This guy is just gorgeous too. I don't know what to do with him. I only have Seramas, Araucanas and Marans. I have no place to keep him but I don't want him to go to a bad home either.
