    First one looks like a cross of some sort but not leghorn. The second one looks like a leghorn he has the white earlobes of the leghorn and the colour fits but his leg colour got me wondering if he is crossed with something else.

    Quote:The reason is that because games will fight to the death, and I have many roosters.....The only way that they can live together without being caged it to be tied. A small nylon attachment on an end of rope and there you have it. They can roost in trees and eat all the bugs and grass they want without the problems of a small cage.......They can even breed while tied.......

    I lived in Ky where it was still legal to go to the derby. So you would see alot of these systems while you drove down.
