    I'm seeing barring, so there's probably some Barred Rock or Cuckoo Maran in there somewhere.

    Since he has yellow legs I would say probably a BR cross. Is his comb straight or rose? It kind of looks like a cross between the two.

    Looking at the pics again, I wonder if it's a buttercup comb?

    Very nice of you to rescue him and for your neighbor to give him a home. I would say same thing either Barred Rock or Cuckoo Maran. The other thought was he has some funky breeding where he has a Crele OEGB gene in there.

    Quote:Not OEGB, crele can be on any breed. Probably a RIR and BR cross.

    he has something like a buttercup comb where it looks like 2 combs squashed togther. i would have kept him but my silkie rooster almost killed him like blood was everywhere so i figured it would be better if he went to my neighbers house

    Where do you live? I want to come there and randomly find handsome roosters by the side of the road- esp ones who let me catch them!

    He looks like a rooster that went through h***. At least he's safe now. [​IMG]

    I would say barred rock cross. I noticed that he had white ear lobes and blue in his tail.So my guess is there is brown leghorn and blue andalusian in the mix.
