    A friend gave us this roo a couple of weeks ago. We think its a Rhode Island Red but not sure. His comb looks like a section of cauliflower!

    He is not a RIR. He's a beautiful cross - color is very much like a New Hampshire and beard , muffs and comb say perhaps Ameraucana/EE. Whatever, he is a beautiful, healthy looking bird.
