Cockerel Identification Please

Recommended Posts

My friend has just started chicken keeping and has sent a photo of her new cockerel.

He's only young and not crowing yet but she'd be interested to know what breed he might be.



He was given to her as a Silkie but he's nothing like my Norris, so I think we've ruled that out!


I think he looks a lot like my Araucana girl but wondered what you all think :think:

(Sorry for size of photo)

he could be a Silky cross or at least have a bit of Silky in Him there's certainly a bit of a breed that has a rose comb in the mix and it looks like he's got a bit of a crest that might be from the Araucana personally I'd say it's a cross of a cross i.e a Heinz 57
