    Hello.
    I've had a Rooster randomly turn up in my garden.
    I have 3 immediate neighbours and our next closest neighbours are about half a mile away. We've spoken to everybody and no one knows anything about him!

    He's been hanging out in our garden for about a week now, (we have 6 hens)

    At first he'd run away as soon as he saw or heard us. we can now get to about 20 feet from him.

    We've thrown corn to him and he just runs! We think he may have been living wild for some time.

    Anyways, I was wondering if anyone knew what breed he was?
    We've named him "Harrison" as he has a beatles mop top hair cut (this is why I'm struggling to identify him.

    We've not got any great photos of him yet as we can't get close enough!

    Thanks

    Steve.

    Silkie mix. Not your classic "living in the wild" bird. Probably dumped by some jerk cause he's a cockerel.
