    Once I posted this she came back and said that she's not certain that it's actually a buttercup comb.. Thanks for the responses everyone!
    Would a place like orchelans actually sell mix breeds?? That's where he came from..

    I wonder if it's a mix of Java... This is a female Java that I own, and we at first thought the rooster might be a java because of the tan markings...

    this is a cockerel as well you can tell by the hackles and saddles that have developed they are long slender and pointed
