    What do you think he is? His tail feathers are coming back in, they usually touch the ground.

    By hubby thought the seller said he was a game cross, but I think she was talking about the hens we bought at the same time. He doesn't look all that 'muttish' to me....the hens are all a x breed.

    This is not a Welsummer and not a Old English Game as both have single combs. The Old English from cackle have dubbed combs.
    With the rose comb I would think that he is a Wyandotte
    and may be a cross breed but the leg color and a lot of his color looks like a golden wyandotte.
    Maybe someone that has this breed can enlighten us.
    He is a nice roo what ever he may be.

    Thank you members, looks like you're narrowing it down....he is a handsome young roo I just don't know what to tell people about his breed [​IMG]
    I have him for sale with his 6 ladies.
    So his comb and leg color rule out OEG...good to know.

    I think he is a mix; perhaps a Hamburg was one of the parents. That would explain the rose comb and nice tail feathers.

    I'm just learning and don't know the names of the combs yet. Okiehen mentions a 'rose comb'.
    (He sure has a fast dance for the ladies...he's trying to mate any hen he can...even my new ones.
    He's good at mating now...no feathers missing on his ladies.)
