    Hes probably not a purebred. I dont know I got him from a local feedstore in the mixed bantam bin. I dont have any baby pictures but he is about 3 years old now. His comb used to be longer but there was a cold snap this winter that gave him a bit of frostbite that took off all the points on his comb. His tail feathers also had some longer droopy green feathers but I think stress or something has made them not grow back for a few months now. But if anyone knows what he might be...? Ideas...?

    *Chicken behind him is the front end of a RIR if that helps with his size orientation... I dont have a weight on him and Im so not gunna pick the mean little booger up LOL But I would guess "Around" 3 pounds...?

    Haha I hate to say it but after I had to pay a vet about 170 bucks for a hole in my cats face.... ugh so gross looking... I kinda laughed at his frostbite. I think Ive found the reason he is losing tail-feathers... He plays with the dog next door. I think that dog is getting his feathers
