    Of our mystery rooster.

    Someone has said he is a Mutt, and others say he is an American game.

    Any other ideas?

    Here is his head shot...

    He could be a Sicilian Buttercup cross. He's got the coronation comb that buttercups have.

    He's handsome, but I don't think he's pure of any one breed.

    Buttercups don't even have crests. [​IMG]

    No, this bird is simply a crossing of a Polish and something with a pea comb. Infact, it looks identical to my Easter Egger x Polish. The buttercup type comb you see there is because of the crossing of a V comb and a pea comb, which results in a sort of "bowl" shape at times. The small crest confirms this, the tail angle and body type confirms this, and his almost Brown-Red type color also shows that his parents somewhere had possible duckwing in them.

    Really, he looks identical to my old EE x Polish. . . Down to the color, comb, and body type.
