    Looks like a mix. He is most likely leghorn mixed with a pea combed breed.

    We got this rooster free off craigslist as a Leghorn to mix with our Easter Eggers, but he has brown spots and a comb i never saw before, any ideas on what he may be crossed with? Thanks for any input!

    He might be an easter egger mix. Easter eggers are the most common breed with a pea comb.

    Looks like he might be a red sexlink Easter Egger.

    Oh I didn't even recognize that as a pea comb, I thought it was too spiky, the only chickens we have with pea combs for comparison are young Easter Egger hens so far

    Leghorns have white earlobe (and there is leghorns strands with rosecombs)
    This one dose not have a white earlobe!

    I thought it might be a rosecomb too. He was claimed to be all Leghorn, but when I picked him up I noticed faint brown spots on his wings. When I asked about it they said well there are brown leghorns too...but that reply makes no sense because we have a couple brown leghorns and one has nothing to do with the other. We took him anyway and it wasn't until we got home that we noticed the odd comb. Now we are trying to figure out what he is because we don't want to possibly mix brown egg genes with our easter eggers.
