    Can anybody identify the breed of this roo? The owner says it's a cochin, but they have feathery legs.



    I'm searching for a new roo and this is one of the applicants.

    Thanks for your help.

    Langshan?? I don't really know... The video is so short you only get a quick glimpse.

    I know, I watched it like 5 times trying to see more. I asked for pics, but guess that was the best he could do. The misidentification by the owner makes me tend to immediately say "mutt" but that's not necessarily fair.

    I googled Langshan and he does look like that. Hmmmm.

    I do think he's a pretty boy.

    I am thinking Langshan, too b/c his shanks look so long. There are some clean-legged Langshans out there - in the US they are not SQ but they show them in Germany. Since the video's above him, it's hard to see if he's got the "U" shape, but of all the breeds I could have thought of when I saw the video, Langshan makes the most sense.
