    Hi, can anyone tell me what breed my rooster is here? I am thinking he is a wyndotte of some sort, but wanted another opinion. Thanks in advance.

    He's pretty.

    Not a wyndotte, looks kinda like a blue cochin except for the comb.

    Mabe is is a barnyard mix, i have alot of them here i love all the varations of mixed breeds.

    I don't know breeds really well but I'd say a barnyard mix or possible EE? did he come from a blue/green egg?

    I don't think its a Cochin pure bred because he doesn't have feathered feet. His type is too sharp and not roundish enough. Cochins tend to be rounder even if they are bad type, you can see easily its a cochin.
