    My friend has a rooster that she needs identified. He's for sure purebred as he was one of those mystery hatchery Roos. The strawberry comb is not something I'm familiar with so I'm having trouble with this ID. Any ideas?? Thanks!

    To me he dosent look like an RC brown leghorn. I have raised them before and still have some, but then again I have never had hatchery stock ones.

    Hi, Why do you say he has a strawberry comb? His comb looks too big for that. It is hard to tell from the photo but is he a bantam or LF? Well he is not a leghorn or a buttercup, though his coloring is reminiscent, his earlobes are not white nor are his legs willow. I think it would be helpful if you could get a closer photo of his head and comb. Good luck.
