    we went to a local swap meet the other day and my little sister bought these from a guy and didn't ask what they were here are some pictures of them they stand up VERY tall and lanky but they are still young enough that the cockeral doesn't crow they have heavily feathered feet and the feather on their upper legs stick out behind them 3 or four inches when they sit down. has anyone ever seen these before and better yet know what in the world they are?

    Maybe a leghorn/game bird cross? Very neat looking!

    i don't know they have beards and a very small top knot so that made me think maybe silkie but then i thought about the skin color and the way they are built. i don't know they are very confusing to me

    I was thinking more like Sultan crosses.
    maybe crossed with Saipan. That what the upright walk looks like anyhow!
