    My friend brought him home from work Yesterday afternoon and I was wondering what breed he is or if He looks Like a purebred. He has feathers on his feet so I thought cochin. But he has a rose comb. I don't know if cochins have rose combs or not.

    They brought him home for dinner but no one has the heart to cull him. He could make cute babies. If only my girls were a bit older. oh well 6 more weeks till they start laying.

    It kind of looks like someone's Partridge Brahma project. His breast is far too messsy to qualify him for any kind of showing, but he is a beautiful bird none-the-less.

    Congrats!

    Looks like he has a beard. Brahmas also have yellow legs. Probly a Cochin or Brahma/EE cross
