    I got a rooster a few months ago from a friend. She got him as a chick from someone who ordered hatching eggs off a few people on here. I asked her what the rooster was but she didnt know. I dont know either. He could be a mixbred but she told me that all of them was suppose to be purebreds. So I dont know. Ive never seen one like this. Typical shape, featherless legs, red single comb, yellowish orange eyes with some blue/green mixed in them. Still too young to crow but he is getting there. Anyways here he is . He is a little dirty (usually not this yellowish looking. but his feathers are stained.) from all the rain we have been having lately. I will add a photo of what his usual color is when he is clean.
