This forum has been set up to accomodate the tricky questions.... mainly,

1) What breed do you think this bird is? Is it a cross? and if so, any ideas on what sort? :hmmm:

or

2) Is this bird a hen or a rooster? :hmmm:

If your question is in regards to colours and genetics when breeding, please post the question in the Breeds and Breedings FORUM located here...

Please include photos of birds in question. Try and get a few shots of the bird, perhaps one in a group of brothers and sisters, a full body shot, and a close up of the head and comb. Try and make sure the important areas are in focus :wink: as tail and hackle feathers are often a giveaway! Try to avoid holding the bird in your hands, as this doesnt allow viewers to see the birds usual stance. This will (hopefully!) make identification as easy as possible. :D Try and add as much of a description on the bird as possible... for example, size, shape, feather colouring or feathered feet, leg colour, even HOW MANY TOES! :lol: type of comb, colour of egg, and perhaps any thoughts yourself as to what the breeder had around which may have produced the bird...

To find out about putting your photos into a thread, click here...! :addicted:

good luck! :catch:
