    This is our Roo Banjo. He is beautiful and unfortunately we had to give him back due to an allergy. We hope to get the allergy thing resolved and wanted to get the same breed but we don't know what to look for. The guy who gave him to us originally said he had some game bird in him. I really miss him, he had a beautiful voice and was very friendly. Unfortunately my big peep's health comes first.[​IMG]

    Looks like a silver duck wing OEG

    With white ear lobes & a rose comb???? If it was a Game it would be a Golden Duckwing not a Silver.
    It's a very colourful cross breed.​

    I was told that the white near his ear was favus and was treatable with an anti-fungal. He was a "junkyard" roo that was brought to live at a better place.

    No, the white earlobe indicates that he's got another breed in him.

    Normally I'd say he looks like he's got some Brahma in there, but with a white earlobe maybe he's got some Dutch in there too?

    Is he a bantam or standard sized bird?

    He is smaller than a standard size. The hens he was with are Brahmas. Here is a close up of his head.[​IMG] I have looked up some other pictures on other websites and he does look like he is mostly Golden Duckwing. He is young also, less than a year old.

    Maybe a Brahma / Salmon Faverolle mix.
