    I have 3 roosters/cockerels I got as chicks this year, and I am really curious as to what 2 of them are.

    This is a pictures of one of them, I bought him as a silkie mix chick.

    I got this one as a mixed Maran, and I know that the person I got him from as a chick had Wheaten marans.
    When he was younger he had some blue and recently he has gotten a lot of black.


    Never mind any of the junk in the background. We are in the middle of moving and our landlord was just here messing around outside making a mess [​IMG]

    The first rooster is definitely a mix. He could have some Silkie in him, or some Polish, or Appenzeller Spitzhauben.

    Your second rooster does look like a possible Wheaten Marans.

    I'm quite sure it's got Appenzeller Spitzhauben in him because of the spots of his chest, they are very similar to my Appenzellers'

    Oh,wow he does look a lot like a Appenzeller Spitzhauben.

    To me most Maran rooster colors look the same [​IMG] I can't tell them apart.

    That first Rooster looks like a Silver Spangled Hamburg to me! Sooo Beautiful!

    His coloring is similar to a Silver Spangled Hamburg, but he lacks the rose comb of the Silver Spangled Hamburg. There is likely SSH in the mix however.

    #1 Roo has a really odd comb that I'm curious if it is a clue to one of his breeds, also when he was younger he had a headdress like thing and looked kinda like a Silver Campine to me. Strange how much they change as they get older.
