    I have a handsome EE Roo, who was supposed to be a RIR pullet. I'm guessing he has RIR as one parent, but what could be the other?
    This is General Tso:

    And then came his son, Ruffio, who's mother is a pure Black Austrolorp:

    He seems to be growing ear tufts. Perhaps they are just "muffs"? If anyone can guess what breeds General Tso has come from, I'd be seriously grateful. I am hoping his daughters (sisters to Ruffio here) will be OE's, but it's torture waiting months to find out!

    General Tso looks like one of his parents might be a Golden Cuckoo Maran. He has similar markings to the GCM cockerel.
