    Does he look like a bantam? I will measure him tomorrow (and post his height), but he is MUCH smaller than my Silver Laced Wyandotte, White Leghorn, and Delaware roosters. He does not weight much either. I dont know how old he is. But he is very featherd, and has a huge comb. So he is sure to be a full size adult.

    He has a Walnut/Rose type comb.

    Ameraucana????

    But what about the feathered legs?

    He could VERY WELL be a mutt as I do not know his history.

    But I think he is beautiful.

    He does not have Ameraucana puffy cheek feathers (beard). He reminds me (in body shape) of a Mille Fleur d'Uccle. That would explain the leg feathers.

    He is a uniquely handsome fellow. Might want to trim his spurs a bit and investigate what is going on with his comb. Don't ya love his strut?

    Based on the body shape and small crest I would say a silkie X favorelle. No telling what else he has in there, interesting color pattern though.

    There's no Ameraucana in there, trust me. . . [​IMG]

    He's got huge waddles and a huge comb. He's obviously got some Silkie in there, but the other part has got to be something with a rosecomb perhaps. . . And something duckwing or birchen-based.

    possibly cochin x rosecomb

    cochin from the body shape, and rose comb from the comb and spurs
