    I got this guy for free, he's huge! The lady said he was a barnyard mutt and had been born on her farm. Any idea to his breed(s)?

    He will look much more handsome when his neck feathers grow in. He was picked on where he was

    Yikes, that is almost a turkey. He's got red barred feathers, black barred feathers, looks almost paint as patchy as the color is on his chest, lot of white on his wings and tail. One heck of a comb and wattles. I don't know where to start. Giant barred breed x giant red breed with big single comb? Turkey?
