    I get a call from a lady in town upset because there is a rooster on the side of the road in the ditch shaking. I went and picked it up for her and quantined it to a brooder away from my flock. I really believe it was hit by a car although their are no outside wounds, just a few messed up feathers. It is very weak and near death I believe. I however took a picture and sent to her that it was safe with food and water. I can't figure out what breed it is tho! It has a rose comb and I keep looking for others its color and haven't found anything close. Maybe a mixed breed? Does anyone else have any ideas??

    Crossbred. Likely some Wyandotte blood in him.
