    Hi,
    can anyone tell me what breed(s) this rooster might be please? I got him as a 2day old with another chick which turned out a black Auracana hen. He is very alert and flighty, and small compared to my Wyandotte rooster. I've checked endless breed photo's but can't work it out. I live in Sydney, Australia.[​IMG]

    He does have a striking resemblance to some of the Cream Legbar cockerels I've seen! Whatever he is, he's gorgeous!

    Hi Chicken Girl, thanks for the reply... I was trying to find a photo but from memory he was speckled from the start or a charcoal colour... I just remember him as an older chick, same colouring, and didn't take much notice as we thought he was a beautiful girl and had named him Princess:lol: Now I really need to find him a new home and was hoping that he's something special so that someone will want him:)

    Nothing pure is coming to mind. Good chance he is a Legbar cross though. His comb, earlobes, general body shape, and the barring in males all match Legbar traits. He's lacking the Legbar base color, yellow legs, and the crest.
