    Hi there!
    I'm not sure what he is but I am willing to take a stab at it.
    He is beautiful no matter what he is. He has the coloring of my Salmon Faverolles and the tail feathering of what seems to be a Phoenix. Is there a chance that he is a cross?

    Hoping someone with more knowledge comes by to help you out.

    Thank you for helping. It is possible that he is mixed. Im not really sure. He is a beautiful rooster though. I wanted to find a hen of his breed thats why I wanted to know. I hope to have more that look like him.

    Thank you so much. Thats exactly what he is. Looks just like him. I was told he was something called a grey and then someone else said he was a typical regular game hen. Hes a beautiful rooster and hes not at all mean, so Im wanting to breed him. I cant tell you how much this means to me.. THANK YOU!!!
