I'm wondering if this might be a Faverolle?

I know his head has been plucked! (I just got him, the other same coloured rooster was beating him up horribly). He's a big bird, has leg feathering on just the outside.

He also has horrible dark patches on his comb and wattles, I'm wondering if that could be frostbite or being pecked at a lot? I'll post these questions to the Help section.

thanks

He looks part cochin to me, and his face and neck looks like he's been in a few really bloody recent fights.

Just keep him isolate from your flock and make sure he heals up.

I think it looks like it's from pecking.

Remember to isolate him from the rest.

Sorry silkiechicken we were typing at the sametime!

I was thinking he might be Dark Brahma?

I deworked him with Eprinex and he's separate from everyone, in a hospital cage. I thought I'd make sure his feathers at least start growing before letting him out. I plan on using him to replace the two roosters I have. I think he'll be a pretty boy once he's healed up. I also thought I'd give him some Rooster Booster in his water once or twice a week, just to help out and a vit mix as well on other days.
