    View attachment 1470205 Woek up this morning to get a text from mom saying her coworker had a rooster show up into her yard.Were the only people she knows with chickens so I figured hearing about the condition he was in,why not.I love roosters.Currently have four.Two adults,and two babies.This guy will be coming home today and am wanting to know what breed he is.He was not in as bad condition as I expected,he actually looks young and healthy.

    Looks like an American Gamefowl. I could be wrong but definitely a Gamefowl.

    Game of some sort, and he's been dubbed. It's highly unlikely he's going to play nicely with your other males.

    That’s a game cock and he will not get along with any other cockerel or cock. He will be a great protector for your pullets/hens.

    Does look like intentional dubbing, but I have some boys that lost combs to frostbite that look like they were dubbed. Check him out cautiously!
