    This little guy was found and I was curious to what breed he is??? [​IMG]
    Poor guy is missing part of his comb and legs are covered in mites. I do have him quarantine from my chickens (in the bedroom) [​IMG]
    He ate like he was starved. I am treating his mites. What worming method should I start with and anything else I need to do or watch for?
    Thanks for any help

    PS: oh, he needs a name? [​IMG] (he really is a sweet little guy!)

    I think he's a gold duckwing american game bantam...i think [​IMG] if you look at the ones on feathersite they are identical, except that his comb is not dubbed.

    Looks like a gold duckwing OEG. I wonder if he's missing part of his comb because someone botched a dub job???

    Towards the back part of his comb (on the tips) are a blackish-purple color, what would that be from?

    Thanks for the replies. He really is a handsome little sweetie. I guess he is just thankful to have food, water and a warm place to sleep! I hope to find him a good home (I am sure my two roos won't like him as much as I do) [​IMG]

    Dubbing is cutting off the comb and wattles of a game cock (as close to the head as possible). That's your "botched". Which has to be completed prior to showing. As far as the discoloring on the comb, I would say if he has already seen a full winter- frost bite. Which is pretty common in game birds if you don't dubb. Hope that helps.

    I would call that a grey game as far as color. OP- you either have a american game or OEGB, depending on size.

    He's pretty! How about calling him Lucky! He's lucky to have found you and ended up in your bedroom! LOL

    I do see the scaly leg mites. Poor thing. I use petroleum jelly, with Seven Dust mixed in for that. What do you use?
