    Any help?
    The pics are of our bantam rooster. His name is Benny and he is the head hauncho out of 4 roosters including a JG and a Welsummer. Just ask him and he will tell you!

    We are trying to determine what he is and get him appropriate companionship. You can see he has a neat double comb. Some of the pics aren't real clear because he wouldn't stop moving [​IMG]

    He looks like a "possible" red sexlink roo... I've had some RIR/White Leghorn crosses that look very simular to this roo, but there are several possibilities... he's definately a cross breed of some kind.

    he is positively gorgeous if he's a red sex link roo- mine have never looked that pretty!! I've never seen a RSL roo with that type of a comb before, all mine have always had a regular comb. Pretty bird

    would you call his comb a double comb or a buttercup? What other breeds have this type of comb?

    Looks like a rose comb to me. I have no idea what he is but agree with the possible game cross.

    OK - Looks like a cross for sure with a Red Pyle Old English Game bird. I just don't know what would have given him that double comb and huge waddles.

    Keep the guess's comin.

    Thanks for everyone's help.
