I recently took in my neighbors rooster, as he was moving and could not take it with him, but I am wondering what kind of rooster is this. I was told it is an asil but after doing more research I may believe it is a Malay as the tail seems to be too short. I’m not sure though since Malays are cushioned combed can it be a shamo or even asil still.

I am no expert on the breeds you mention in your post, but, out of curiosity, did some reading. Tail length does not seem to be a characteristic bred for so it's likely the tails on these roosters vary. Also, is the tail grown in completely?

He's an interesting bird.

I’m not sure I was told he is about 9 months old so I’m not sure if tail is completely grown.

Looks aseel to me
Is it on the larger or smaller side. Aseels are the smaller. But orientals smaller is regular chicken large.
