    I bought this hen at a swap recently. She has 5 toes and a rose comb. What do you think the parentage could be? She lays a cream colored egg. She's also very heavily built, like a tank!

    Blue Wyandotte x Silver Dorking. The body type certainly matches it too.

    Salmon Faverolle would completely change her color, give her muffs and beard, and feathered shanks.

    btw - Love your Modern Game Bantam!

    Quote:I'm going to have to try and find out what breeds the person that sold her had. Dorkings are pretty rare and so are Blue Wyandottes for that matter. At least they are in this neck of the woods.

    Dorkings can be purchased from any common hatchery or feedstore. . . It's the Wyandotte part I'd wonder of.

    Quote:Yep, like Illia said, Beards and Feathered leggs are both dominant trait and should be present to some degree in this bird if it had a Faverolle parent.
