    So I got this rooster a little bit ago and am wondering what he is. All the people could tell me was that he is a mix.

    Sorry these are really bad pics, I'll try to get some better ones later.

    Not sure if you can tell, but on the top of his head it looks like he has a "bump" of feathers. Like a big clump of it. And his black tail feathers shine green in the light.

    Some Better pics!

    Hard to tell by the pics, but, going by the markings and the color, I'm going to say buff brahma x a crested breed. Silkie, polish, etc.

    no because then it would have a V comb because V trumps walnut

    Honestly my first thought when I got him was that he looked Polish-y.

    If he has a fifth toe than he's definitely a silkie cross...

    Also, his crest and lower body/leg feathers look pretty poofy, so I'm betting on silkie cross anyway... though the legs may be from the Brahma.

    But if he is Polish x Cochin, than there is no walnut comb in the equation..

    Im not trying to start an arguement. [​IMG] There may be a fifth toe there.
