I hatched some chicks this year. They're a little older now, and I would like to know of any possible mixes from my flock.

Here are the possible fathers for these chicks:
- Buff cochin
- Silver duckwing oegb
- golden Sebright
- GLW

Possible mothers:
- barred rocks
- sebright
- golden laced wyandottes
- sex links
- jersey giants
- grey, buff, and black cochins (bantams)
- lakenvelder
- crevecoeur
- white leghorn
- polish
- standard (not bantam) sized old english game, or some kind of jungle fowl (long legs :))
- ardenner bantam
- maran (no feathered feet)
- white silkie


Golden and black patterns/speckles: she's a bantam

This one has feathered feet. I'm thinking she's a buff cochin (roo) x barred rock (hen)? Looks like she has a single comb.
What do y'all think?





This next one I'm almost certain is a silver duckwing oegb mix. His comb, though, is like a mixture between 2 combs. Maybe the mother is a sebright?
He's also bantam sized:

Thinking the father's a silver duckwing old english game bantam and the mother is a sebright (because of the comb)??

Can you post pictures of the parents. Are you sure the mother of the long legged fellows was an Old English Game hen? Looks more like a Modern Game cross.
I think the father of the cockerel is a silver duckwing OEGB. I don't have silver duckwing OEGB hens, or any OEGB hens for that matter.

The pullet is likely Buff Cochin x Ardenner, I think.
Cockerel is silver Duckwing OEGB xโ€ฆ.do you have any noncrested Crevs?
Heโ€™s got a buttercup comb, or single-V comb.
I have a some Crevecoeur mixes that have very small crests. Only a few tufts on top of their head.
