    The man across the street came over the other day and said his dad has these chickens that came from Pakistan. He would bring us one. This roo has pin feathers starting on his head and down his neck. He has large spurs though. So he isn't young. I figure at least a year old.
    Here are some pics. Could somebody identify him for me please. He is a beautiful bird but I can't put him with my flock because the man said he will fight till the death. We don't allow mean chickens here. He is very beautiful.
    I'm not sure if I want to find a hen or not. I may just rehome him.

    Ignore the mad look on DH's face. He had just got wings flapped in his face. He was getting ready to close his eyes in case of another wild burst. lol

    Maybe an Aseel? that's what they use for doing that BAD BAD thing! It doesn't seem to have really good evidence of being fought. I would be very careful around it!

    Be careful. Threads about cock fighting are banned. If people don't limit their responses to trying to figure out the breed, the thread may get closed.

    Looks like a Shamo or Assel to me...game cock.

    I do not know what breed he is, but it is not illegal to own any breed of chicken, sorry. No matter what he is, owning him is not a crime anywhere in the U.S. that I'm aware of. He has beautiful colors in his plumage, though.
    And as Jody said:

    2. No PETA or Cock fighting posts, period!

    Unless this conversation is limited to what breed he is, the thread will be closed.

    Yeah--it's not against the law to own those. IDEAL hatchery sells them. It's only illegal to use them to fight (in certain nearly every state). I've heard in the right hands, they are very smart & personable birds, in fact.

    Could be that he is coming into or going out of a molt. I have 4 Rhode Island reds that get that way right before a molt..
    As for that rooster being used for "bad things" I would say no..

    Can you get a pic of him standing naturally? A profile shot would be best.
