    A mutt. He's a cross of something Columbian in color (Sussex, White Rock, etc) and something that had slate or black legs.

    Wow, that's a surprise. He was bought from a hatchery in a straight run "surprise" group.... Surprise! lol. Guess that's something to watch out for. Still, he is pretty. Thanks so much,I appreciate it.

    I have a roo that looks just like that. We got our chicks on Easter at TSC. 4 sexlink hens and 3 creamy white roos. Were told that they are Amberlinks... Being a military family our last roo was Lt Fuzz, he died in the line of duty protecting his hens from a fox. This new one is Colonel Sanders (due to the white feathers) , he is awesome with the hens and HUGE, double the size of our hens. Very good at protecting the flock. Even if I pick one up and they stary bauk bauking he comes running to check thinks out, but does not attack me. Yours is a beauty. Good luck.

    That sounds just like mine. He is huge. HE does the same thing, when I am putting them in at night, if i have a stubborn hen and pick her up, he comes running. He only jumped me once and I got in his face and said NO! After that, you could see his little chicken brain remembering. We are a military family too! Army [​IMG]
