    FBE47C74-0B53-4277-A622-E4CEE1D69A1E.jpeg I just got a new rooster and was wondering what breeds he could be crossed with. He is pretty small (only about 3lbs). Thanks:)

    That's what I was thinking too:)

    That's what I thought at first because of his comb but he doesn't have a muff (which I have found to be dominant).....so either he has easter egger way back in his bloodlines or something else gave him that comb. Maybe Wyandotte? It would be fun if he carried the colorful egg gene though!

    Wyandottes have rose combs, and he has a pea comb, so probably not from them.

    He does have a couple feathers on his legs....maybe a bantam Brahma cross? The only other breed I could think that he could be crossed with that has a pea comb is a Sumatra....
