    I have a 7 month old Polish Roo, very sweet boy and very colorful. after looking at pictures I'm thinking he's either a silver lace/white crested cross, or a dark splash? He doesn't seem to fit in with any of the colors exactly and I'm guessing some kind of color cross? Any help would be great, I'm new to this and trying to get everyone identified as best as I can!

    Does he have 5 toes? I think he looks like a mottled Houdan..

    He does have 5 toes, but no beard? He came from a hatchery...maybe a mixup?

    He almost looks like a polish/serama cross to me. Here is my Serama: Looks alot like him in body style. now mine is no show serama by any means he's only a pet but the body style sure does look like his [​IMG]

    Here he is in mid crow...

    Just wanted to add that the wing tips go downward like the seramas do too.

    Thanks all...I will stick with breeders from now on, at least I know what I'm getting! I really wanted a Polish, but Elvis is gorgeous and we love him- I'll just have to add another coop for a Polish rooster next Spring LOL
