    I know this is a mix, but its a mix of pure roo and pure hen of different breed. Also likely a Rooster.

    HE IS GORGEOUS!! Wow...[​IMG] I'm thinking maybe a Delaware/Leghorn cross? No matter what he is, he is a keeper in my book! :)

    I thought white leghorns tended to make whatever they were crossed over look white with maybe a fleck or two of black. His markings look too uniform for that?

    If you know the parents are each pure, what are the options?

    Agree he looks like something barred, mixed with something silver. Does he really have white/pink legs? Could Sussex be in the mix?
