    I got 3 of these with my "rare breed assortment" from ideal poultry. He seems like he stands kind of tall, he is dark red with a yellowish chest, red skinned legs & brown feathers coming in with a little bit of black. Thanks!

    He looks like he has a rose comb? Partridge Wyandotte maybe? Ideal does carry them. They also have Chanteclers in partridge.

    I do believe he has a rose comb. I looked up chicks for those breeds & he is a lot darker/richer red than the PW, I also noticed their skin appeared yellow while his is more red. The PC chicks looked more chipmunk striped also, where as he is more of a solid color...thanks for the reply & keep guessing! (=
