Oh goody! Another guessing game. He could be a young Faverolles, but I think we need more information: color of legs, feathers on legs, etc.

It has the legs of a Faverolle (feathers and extra toe) but it is the wrong color...no tail is Araucana/Americana. The beard can be for either one I suppose.

Hopefully we'll know the answer soon.

Oh, no, it's more fun if we have to work out the answer laboriously! The single comb makes Ameraucana less likely. But the puffy feathering on the head could have come from there. Is he really rumpless or just poorly feathered in the tail department? The hint of Columbian coloration suggests Light Sussex, perhaps. Is he known to be a he?

I see Sussex/Ameraucana mix but wondering about foot feather. Was one of parents a mixed breed as well

Since she has a pea comb and muffs one parent could be Ameraucana but then they should have dark legs. So the other parent would need to have feathered, pale legs and a single comb. And where does the color come from? Hmmm...

How about a Light Brahma crossed with almost any color Ameraucana? That would explain almost everything except the single comb.

Post #8831443

Ahhh, what fun, the plot thickens! This will require a little more thought. The puffy feathers and feathered legs must come from Faverolles. ( I don't know much about Sultans, but neither have the characteristic coif.) The color could come from Light Sussex - in which case where does the sister get her pea comb?) or Brahma which wouldn't explain the brother's single comb... Thinking...

How about Faverolles x Orpington? (Which still doesn't account for how the siblings got different combs, though.) Is the sister's a pea comb, or am I not seeing it right?

No mixes here. They all have their own pens and fenced areas to free range. I also keep a very close watch on my Araucana. It took me 2 yrs to be able to get any tufted birds so I could start breeding

I have some really cool crosses, but can't seem to get the pictures to show. I'll try again when I have a computer again (I'm currently using the library's). Some of my favorite mixes are the Turchins. Naked necks and fuzzy feet. I know, only a mother could love that...
Next year, Turkerolles :)
