    Mixed breed rooster.
    He has some barred ancestry (or cuckoo Marans--are those a few stray feathers on his legs?) and something, I have no idea what, that gave him that funky comb.....He sure looks like he has presence!

    Thanks for your reply Donrae
    Yes a few feathers on the legs, and mud where he has been chasing the hens, I took him off a friends friend, who was going to kill him, to eat, can't take any more though, I have 5 roos, 22 hens, 2 chicks, which may be roos too have to see

    He is possibly Barred Rock, Cuckoo Marans and Sicilian Buttercup. He looks like a Marans and Buttercup mix except his yellow legs. Neither of those breeds have yellow legs so he may have BR in the background somewhere to up production?
    This is the likely mix from myself looking at these pics but I could be off some. We had a Buttercup roo so I know traits of those pretty well at least. The rest I'm going on memory and likely for his looks.

    Agreed. The comb looks somewhat like a rosecomb, he may have some Wyandotte in him.
