    Hi all!!

    So I know he's a boy (he crows and chases the girls around [​IMG] )

    However I just have no clue what he might be? A cross perhaps? Anyone have any ideas??

    not 100 % sure but he almost looks like a pyncheon not sure though I sent his picture to a friend of mine. He could be a pyncheon x. Like I said I don't know so [​IMG] maybe my friend can help.

    There are a few different breed that have the Mille Fleur color pattern. From reading the Pyncheon has a crest. The d Uccle can come in that color, but have feather legs and beards. Dutch and Old English also can come in that color. Those are just the breeds that I know of, there could be more or some in the works. If he is pure I would lean more toward the Dutch or Old English variety, more so the Dutch. He could be a cross that resembles the color.

    Anyone else notice his horrible leg mites? It almost looks like a part of his foot is broken [​IMG]
    One of those feet looks terrible! My first thought was a d'uccle cross.
