    Hi all! Can someone help me figure out what breed our lovely rooster is? We found him in the forest behind our house (here in Hawaii) and he jumped in our coop and has called it home. He's great and is now the father to many of our little chicks. We're thinking he's an Ameraucana...

    He looks almost like my Iowa Blue rooster, but the combs not quite right. [​IMG]

    I think some sort of game or game mix. He's very handsome.

    is he bantam or large fowl?? I say mixed breed. breeds that I think might be in him(and why):
    Americana(coloring,comb)
    Hamburg(ear lobe, spots on left wing)
    Leghorn(ear lobe)
    Cornish (Comb, body shape)
    Cubalaya (comb,tail)
    ect.
    those are just a few breeds that come to mind. whatever he is, sure is handsome!

    He isn't Ameraucana (at least not pure) ... no beard, wrong comb, wrong coloring.

    Yes, I agree some sort of mix. He is drop dead gorgeous!! Very interesting patterning.

    Looks like a handsome mixed breed rooster. He has some (probably mostly) game blood, and perhaps some Easter Egger.

    White ear lobes, no muff/beard..... Not a pea comb...... I don't see Ameraucana either. LOVE his duck wing pattern!!!!!

    Quote:This, although I'm not really seeing the ee. Many mixed breeds seem to wind up with green legs, that's not a definer of an ee.
