    The rooster in the first picture is an American Game Fowl. I am not sure which variety (Hatch, Kelso, etc.); I am not that familiar with game fowl. The rooster in the second picture I think is a Redcap. If so they are very different breeds.

    Actually the bird looks like a game cross. Did you quarantine him before adding him to your flock?

    Looks like an American Gamefowl of sorts, either purebred or cross. (or just poor quality)

    Brandon, if he is in your yard anywhere near your other chickens, he is in your flock. Isolation means just that-isolation. As you have already learned many chicken diseases are airborne. Hopefully you have not added more to your flock. If you continually add chickens to your flock, you will never correct the health problems your chickens have been facing.

    Quote:I'd say cross too, especially for five dollars. Even if people are just wanting to get rid of them, they're at least 10-15 a stag (though some do give them away).
