    Is this a Brahma? Can anyone give me a better idea of what kind of rooster this is? Thank you. I purchased him from a BYC member and forgot to ask. He was soooo pretty I just plain forgot. He is huge 10+ and crows often and LOUD. He is always looking for a fight. Does not seem to fly. The top of his feet are more white and the backside and bottom of his feet are pinkish. Is not a bad rooster at all just does not understand he will never get through the fence to the adjoing run where the other rooster is. Is probably 1-2 years old. Thank you
    Please tell me if you think he is mixed breed or if it would be okay for my granddaughter to show him at the fair. :)[​IMG][​IMG]

    the edge of insanity
    Brahmas have feathered feet, so that is not it. He is a looker!

    He reminds me of an EE I had before.

    Are EEs that large? Hmmm I wonder if he is a mixture of several breeds down the line and just turned out big a pretty. He is so pretty, we want to show him but I think they have to be pure breed to show them right. They should have a category for big and pretty:lol:[​IMG]

    You sure he's not a small feathered dinosaur? I think he's a mix, a big and cool looking mix.

    I would guess he is an extra large EE. Very nice looking bird.

    Don't EE's usually have slate or greenish legs, though?

    Hrm, this one is a brain-teaser. Pink legs arn't common, so that narrows it down a bit (I would have guessed part Jersey Giant if it wasn't for them). And his size would narrow it down more to heavy breeds. I'd say you've got a EE crossed with a Light Sussex. That would explain the dark tail, the size, the white legs, and some of his body coloring.

    RareFeathersFarm - unfortunately EEs are not a standard breed, and people can do whatever they want with them genetically. Your ideal EE will have colored legs, but it's not a guarentee.
