Hello, I have a picture of my old rooster, who is no longer with us. I’m just wondering what breed he was. I used to think welsummer, but with more digging, I found he looks more like a copper maran. He had some disease on his legs, which would every now and then crack up and bleed, and feathers didn’t grow much. I believe he would have had feathered legs, but they didn’t grow much. Any ideas what breed he was?

I got a bantam from a friend last year that had scaley mites. A couple of days slicking his legs up with bag balm solved that issue, plus dusting his roost with sevin. No more problem.
So far I don’t have that problem, but if I have it again, I’ll use your advice. Thanks!
He was super old anyway. At least 11 years
