    I found this picture on the web with no explanation as to what kind of chicken/fowl it was. Is this a real breed of chicken/fowl or has it been "photo shopped?"

    I think the comb is photo shopped and the body looks like it could be real

    The neck makes it look like it's part guinea part game bird

    Yup, looks like a Green Junglefowl. I've never seen anything quite like it before!

    That is actually its real comb (not photoshopped). Amazing, isn't it?
