    So I got another game fowl mix rooster and he's a beauty but I had a question regarding his face, I know he has scabs and such but does his cheeks or anything look funny? He's active but I have him in another coop for a month or so till I put him in with the others [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. Looks like he mightve gotten into a scrap with another rooster. The wounds are healing nicely. I wouldnt be concerned.

    Is the puffy, skin under his eyes bad or anything or is it just the breed? Or is that how a normal chicken suppose to look like?

    From your pics, it looks normal. But puffy skin is not normal.
