    He’s a bit beaten up and is skinny. I’m in the process of finding him a home. Hence he’s living in a cage in my SUV. I’d just caught him in pic. He now has food, water, and bedding.

    Yeah, I thought some kind of game roo but no expert in chicken kinds ;) With the lack of comb I thought he might be a fighting rooster but he doesn’t seem to have much fight in him.
    I’m looking to rehome him.
    He got into my chicken and my alpha roo had him on the ground beating the tar out of him. His head was pretty bloody when I pulled him. Seems ok now.
    He’s too skinny to eat and I’m not in the business of selling fertile eggs. Taking him to new home tomorrow.

    Bred for fighting but was thrown out because he couldn’t. Glad you picked him up.

    May/may not be true. A lot of the Game chickens these days are bred for showing and to improve/preserve the bloodlines "in the US at least".

    Cock fighting is alive an well[not really well] in this part of the good ole USA :(

    I hate the thoughts. I have some games and they are awesome birds.
