    I know he's got to be a mix breed, but what does he appear to be mixed with?
    Is there a name for the type of comb he has? It's so huge, it often flops over one eye. lol

    Gosh, what an odd comb. Looks like a cross between a rose comb and a buttercup comb. Maybe your roo is a Sicilian buttercup crossed with a rosecomb? [​IMG]

    In retrospect, looking at the picts -- he is a redcap!

    I'll agree with them....Red Cap. Although I've never seen a real live one.

    Thanks so much for the comments, sorry for the delay in replying!!
    Doe anyone have a photo of a Red Cap Roo?
    I've had very little luck finding anything about the breed, or photos!

    I took some more photos of "Big Boy" today. lol

    Thanks again!! [​IMG]
