    Does he have a straight comb? Do his tail feathers grow pretty long? He looks kind of like the phoenix roo that I got from them but I can't tell the comb type in the pic.

    He does have a straight comb, kind of small.

    Here is what my phoenix roo looked like. He was still pretty young in this pic and I know he filled out more after he left here:

    Yeah, yours looks like a Phoenix roo. Very pretty boy!

    Is there anyway too look at his breast from the front. I am pretty sure he is a Phoenix, but I have also seen EE roos look like that. His tail feathers are a little high for a EE.

    Any other ideas folks?

    He does have a straight comb, kind of small. His tail feathers have not grown any longer than what you see in the photos. My first incling was that he is EE. I'll try to get some closeups. Thanks.

    Awesome looking Rooster. My McMurray bonus egg was also a Rooster, but you got a better deal with yours! Very neat.
