  2. Im pretty sure it’s not possible. But if it’s true im not against it. You should call your local vet and let him/her take a look at it. they could do some tests on the DNA and find out what it’s parents were.

  3. Try raising it to see whether the combination of characteristics persists. I doubt very much that you have a hybrid but I heard of one time that a sudden rainstorm came up and the rooster made a duck under the porch.
