Here's one for the experts. What breed is this rooster - or what breed is he most like?
How did he look like as a chick? Did he look like this: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/295800/redcaps/30
Chipmunk, but darker than those. The comb was prominent on day 1.
I read your other posts about Lucky, that's the same chicken as the one you posted on this thread right? Because if he is you said that he was a silkie and Welsummer mix.
Dang. You read too much! lol
I was hoping to get some discussion on the Redcap theory because he appears to have a great deal of the coloration and comb - which I find interesting. The geneticists among us might tell us why, but I've recently seen 4 or 5 pictures of Redcaps that are dead ringers for Lucky - above the knees anyway...
I was planning on testing my local fair judges by entering him as a Redcap to see what they think. Fairs are certainly not like true exhibition and Redcaps points are judged 45% weighted to the comb from what I understand. If coloration, weight, and structure were within Redcap specs, I'm wondering if they'd catch the toes and disqualify.
Well I'm a good searcher lol.
I don't know much about chicken genetics but from the pictures I have noticed that a redcap's comb is a modified rosecomb, I've also noticed that some Dominiques have them too.
Looks like a red cap mix
