    He's been running around in town yards and some neighbors were afraid he'd get their chicks so I took him home but not sure of what he is, really healthy, perfectly colored comb. good weight but spurs are questionable to possibly been cut in the past.

    To add, he's not skiddish to human contact but he won't just let you chase and grab him like any other chicken. More docile in my hands then Polish Crested yet more aggressive.

    Not to be rude but it's obvious, just unsure by the multitude of colours and I have yet let him see my hybrid game bullstag that's already killed a few roosters that walk over in my yard. Funny part is, he's on a tiecord so not his fault.

    Yeah he's game, Mixed but not sure what yet, it's not an orphington he's not even that heavy my gf has one you can tell a difference. Comb tips started getting frosted as its been raining non stop with winds.

    Yes I don't like combs and wattles, a dub to me is more uniform like a fresh haircut. I couldn't tell you the breed but my guess it's a cross, townies said he's running around yards and one said they're scared he'll mess with their chicks so I took him

    Plus it's a hazard to keep the comb
