    Hello all,
    I'm looking to find the breed of bird I have. Inherited him when we bought a new house. Went on Craigslist to research people who wanted a rooster (He's a bully and I don't have enough hens for 2 roosters) and found he may be a rare type of bird. Any input? I think he may be a Madigin Rooster.

    Madigins have straight combs, and are gamebirds, that really looks like a barnyard rooster. Not sure in breed though

    Looks like a run-of-the-mill Easter Egger to me.

    It could have some grey hatch in its blood but as beefy as it is amongst other things it looks to at best to have a bit of gamefowl in it not full maybe a 1/4 at best

    Unless you know the breeder and lines its just a mix and we nor you will likely ever know we are just able speculate and give a educated guess at best.

    He is GEORGOUS!! He looks like he has either some game bird in there, or it looks like he may even have some long tail breeds in there too. VERY pretty tail! He looks to be in perfect condition! Even if he is a mix, I should think you could get some money for him, as pretty as he is! I know I would, but we don't have room for another rooster.

    Awesome input! Thank you everyone. Educated guesses is all I was really looking for lol i know it can be very difficult to distinguish with chicken "mutts". He really is a pretty bird though. I try to pick up tail feathers as he loses them. They make good shop decorations.
