    I saw this picture in a random google image search and MUST KNOW MORE!!


    What breed is it, what color variety? Its feather patterns are all over the place, I'd really love to add these to my flock... [​IMG]

    Not sure but he has short legs like my Cornish, I am not sure cause I can't tell from that pic how broad his chest is.

    I have no idea but it is one beautiful bird. Hopefully someone will chime in that knows. The head makes me think it is some sort of cornish breed but again I don't know.

    Looks like some sort of conish but not sure. Gorgeous bird though!

    That one is really close too!

    It's not just the spots of the spangles I'm interested in, it's how different the birds feathers are, from the rust/white of the wings, to the mid-back/saddle being tan/creame, and then some green/red feathers thrown in.

    I've never seen a bird exhibiting so many colorations!
