I was responding to the persons post about the three varieties.
New Chantecler Color - Page 2

There are only two recognized Chantecler colors. The other colors of which I speak, are colors the APA does recognize for other breeds. If you want to create another color of Chantecler, you must create one that the APA is willing to recognize. Buff tailed brown is not a recognized color variety for any breed.

I am not very familiar with the breed but, I know the buff rooster has an improper comb. On the "J'est another day in Pear a dice," thread the starter raises chanticleers in Canada where they originated. She has some gorgeous birds and has been working to have very flat, small combs to prevent frostbite..
And yeah, if I was seriously breeding I would cull him.
