    One morning I noticed crowing and gigantic orange Rooster on my property.
    I Figured out that he crossed the street from Italian house to my house.
    (I knew that Italian is the only neighbor who have Roosters)
    Called Italian...he said, keep it if you want!
    Yes, I am prone to keep it, because Roo is nice to all my other animals and humans alike, he is smart; going to sleep inside the coop, etc....
    But, it's bugging me what kind of breed he is?
    Can someone identify him please?
    See few pictures attached.

    Oh...poor Roo! I didn't know that this is frost bite! :-(
    I was kind of wondering that his comb is strange looking....
    Damn...Italian was keeping them whole winter in small coop alone...
    and visiting only (maybe) once a week to feed them.....

    It was cut off usually either for frostbite or may have been in a fight or attacked and they finished cutting it off

    That makes me very sad :-( When I called Italian, he said that he was keeping 2 Roo's in that coop & they were fighting...so he put one to live outside. I'm guessing the one from "outside" came to me. I feel so sorry for this Roo now! I am definitely keeping him! And Thank you for replying!

    Agree. Not a big deal.

    Might be New Hampshire. Looks like he's molting.

    No, Rangers are meat birds. This looks like a NH.

    Over a year, by the spurs. Maybe 1.5, or a little older.
