    He has a double comb. He is pretty stand offish to us.[​IMG]

    Does he have muffs?

    Definitley a mixed breed, likely a mix of mixes. Lots of traits going on there---white skin, funky comb, muffs, light body type, dominant white I"m thinking.......too bad we can't see what color egg he'd lay [​IMG]

    He looks like a leghorn to me but I'm not sure with the light brown on his back. Maybe he is a leghorn mix. We have 3 leghorn hens and they have never liked us to handle them.

    Nope, not any pure breed. Nothing matches all those characteristics, he's got a big genetic pool under him, I'd wager.

    A handsome mix he is. That big double bladed comb is cool!

    Right?

    I'd have to breed him to a variety of hens and see what happens....just to see.

    I am sort of in awe of his tail. It's really cool.
