    Ok, this is Little Peck. I am pretty sure hes a boy but don't know what breed or age. I dont think you can see it, but he has feathers down his legs. He's a little rough looking but doing great considering he was attacked by a German Shepard a week ago! Thanks for any input

    Oh yeah, and you also cant see it, but he is getting some burnt orange color in his hackle and on his head and under his wings- really weird but pretty.

    I would say it's definitely a boy, and mixed with silkie at least. I can't tell what else he is mixed with [​IMG]

    He looks a lot like my Silkie/Cochin crosses.

    Well, some of the fluffly you see is from the dog attack- Does that change your mind? And what about the orange, is it weird that its showing up all of the sudden. He is pretty big now, any guess on age?

    Quote:Hmm, he's clean legged though. I don't know what he is crossed with. But i would say a blue, large, breed. Possibly a orpington? I don't know, since im bad at guessing crosses [​IMG].

    I wouldn't say he is older than 4-5 months.

    I wouldn't think silkie and cochin, but definitely silkie with that crest and dark skin! Probably mixed with austrolorp or orpington.

    Quote:Yeah that comes in from the silkie, if he were mixed with cochin he'd have completely feathered legs.
