    I got this guy a couple of months ago and I have no idea what he is. He's very nice and not aggressive at all.

    He definitely gets down to business with the girls-I've already hatched 3 of his chickies [​IMG]

    Looks like some type of Cochin... or a Cochin cross. Possibly a Silke/Cochin cross.

    Maybe Partridge Cochin crossed with something that has that type of comb. My Cochin roo has a large single comb. He's pretty!

    He looks built like a Cochin however I see some crested breed in him. Maybe Silkie? Probably not directly bred from a Silkie, but has some in him.

    Yes, his spurs are waaay long! I couldn't believe it when I saw them. The previous owner did mention him having some silkie in him I just couldn't figure out where. Then I had a silkie and noticed they had similar combs. He's very colorful and vocal (at all hours!) I'm curious to see how my chickies look when they're more mature. I have EE crossed with him and I see that they have his feathered feet. There's also another mix I have but I'm not sure what the egg was. I was brown so it could have been australorp, rir, barred rock...should be interesting!

    I'm going to start another batch on Saturday, yay![​IMG]
