    Hi,

    Im wondering if this rooster is a genetically unusual bird.
    - rose comb?
    - ear tufts?
    - beard?
    - wattles?
    If yes to all, isnt that unusual?

    "If yes to all, is that unusual", for a chicken?

    I read that you cant have ear tufts, beard AND wattles. I also thought i read that a rose comb with tufting is not possible? Is it even a rose comb?

    the comb almost looks like a walnut and a rose squashed together!

    The combination of muffs, beard, and wattles is unusual. He's a mixed breed, likely with Barred Rock, Wyandotte, and Easter Egger in his make-up.
