    I have a rhode island red rooster that has a somewhat deformed comb, and under the red part of his feathers its white (on the same feather), should i give him away? He's kind of stupid, for example when he free ranges he tries to scratch, but he dosn't look down or lift his feet up it's kinda like he's doing the moon walk...

    If you are wanting to breed show quality birds, then you probably need a different rooster. Otherwise, if he's just a pet or for sustaining your flock and you don't care about breed standards...no reason not to keep him if you like him.
