    Hello there! So the deal is I have a friend who kind of one day found this rooster in their yard who is now their pet. And I was just wondering if anyone had an idea as to what he is.

    Thank you all for taking the time to read (and hopefully respond to) this post.

    He looks like a Hamburg cross. The roo I had was spangled but otherwise looks the same.

    It's definately an Ivory caped doodle doo. Very rare...not the speckled variety as the last poster claims, but he is probably new to chickens. [​IMG]

    Glad I am not the only one with random rooster wandering in to their lives.

    I am too new to chickens to venture guesses, I can safely say not RIR or Buff!

    Totally a nice looker!
