    I think that sounds pretty close. Definitely silkie something. Are his feet pretty feathered?
     
  3. I'm not seeing the cochin...except the feather legs!
     
  4. i wonder if there could be some bantam ameraucana in there, too? Cute little guy!

    Yea... his feet are heavy feathered. Feet feathers are kinda stiff though. he was being picked on by my friends chickens, so he gave him to me. Now his tail feathers are coming back and he is a real sweet little fellow.

    I dunno... he looks d'Uccle'ish... Most silkie crosses still retain the dark skin. Can you get a shot of him straight on from the side so we can see his body shape a little better?

    He looks so fluffy and snuggly like a little wookie! [​IMG]

    I bet his white earlobes are a clue, does the guy who bred him have any white egg layers?
