    Ok so a friend of mine called me the other day asking if I wanted another rooster (I had one before but my neighbors dog killed it) so I said yes and she told me that her neighbor was moving and had to get rid of their chickens. I brought him home and everything was good until my hens got mad and started attacking him.and he started to fight back. It was a bloody fight trying to break it all up but I finally got him out of the coop. Now I have him in my other chicken coop and he is fine. My question is, does anyone know what he is? I have never seen a rooster like him. Someone told me he looks like a fighting rooster but I have no clue. He is really picky though. He attacks some people so he has to be locked away. Can someone tell me his breed and if his comb is supposed to be like that?

    If that is a bantam (I can't tell by the picture), then it is called a Dutch Bantam or Dutch Chicken. Let me know if he is a regular sized rooster!

    I agree, easter egger. Whoever bred him could have introduced something like a leghorn a few generations back to boost egg production, giving the larger comb. Yeah, that's one funky comb!
