    He's a Polish. I have a White Crested Black Polish rooster, as does a good friend of mine. Actually we each have a pair, rooster and hen. Our boys' combs look like that, as well as the white earlobes behind the lovely wattles.

    not quite a crev (no beard and wrong earlobe color). If he's a w.c. black he's lacking the white in the crest. and with only a headshot to go off of I'd say most likely not a houdan. Most likely a Polish that doesn't quite meet standards.
