    He is a ok bird, he is shy and all, got him from some friends who were thinkign about eating him and his BR buddy so they gave them to me. So i looked up on google and seen Henry was a BR roo, i looked for Varmint (the roo) and never found what breed he was. So what do you all think he is? He has me stumped on what breed he is. He is small like a bantam then he is smaller then a standered size chicken.

    The comb, shape and color and the little bit of fluff on the head tell me he's mixed with silkie. I don't know much about the buttercups except they're not so common you're likely to have someone giving them away and not knowing what they are, I'd think.

    Hmmm... If it wern't for the comb i'de say nankin or dutch or new hamshire cross.....but the comb isn't rite. He looks like a nankin cross but nankins are so rare it's not that likely. The comb and the crest look like a silkie:lol:. I don't know!
