    I am curious what sort of mix this rooster is. His comb is interesting!

    This pic shows his feather coloration better.

    Thanks in advance!

    Its difficult to tell the breeds that go into a mix. He probably has a Wyandotte in him, but definitely has some other breeds in him too.

    Could be some sort of Wyandotte or Redcap mix, but it is difficult to tell for sure.

    Thanks for the info!! I had always wondered about his unusual comb and would have never guessed to think of him maybe being part Redcap! To be honest, I had never heard of this English breed before!

    The odd thing is that this rooster is located nowhere near England - in fact he's in South America!

    However, I have seen quite a few naked neck mixes, as well as some Wyandottes and barred rocks.

    Thanks again!!
