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?
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...
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...
And here is mama,a salmon faverolle.The rooster is white and there are white faveralles as well as black and blue.The white are beautiful but I don`t have one and I only had the one rooster this summer so I know for sure he is the father of all my babies.The pullet has the coloring of her dad and the face of her mom.I have three or four of them.
Good Going Donna.
L_F_J yes he is going to be a crazy mixed up looking little guy! His name is Onyx and I have to find him a home very soon.
Green, How about another one! Porkpal do you have a puzzle for us? I like this!
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 :)
Here is a new pic of the orpall rooster,he now has balck tail feathers,still cute but will have to go next spring,keeping him for body warmth in the coop for the winter.He is a cute rooster with those puffy cheeks and beard.
