    He's a cross, probably part polish with "something" barred. I won't even take a guess at what the barred could be [​IMG].

    I'd say part polish (looks like he has a very small amount of crest on his noggin [​IMG] (His "do" is slicked back in the head on pic if you look closely) Other than that, I have no guesses. Looks like a crele or cuckoo pattern (I'm still learning to tell the difference between them)?? Just venturing guesses! He is a GORGEOUS boy! Hope he's friendly for you [​IMG]

    So far he hasn't tried attacking any one! I know them spurs looks ferocios on him. Got up to him yesterday and he let me pet him for a mear second but still less than a week at the house with hens that came w/him we have a jet black rooster that came w/him and others. He is less than a year old spurs just forming but couldn't get rid of him his colors are cool. Black w/tints of blue,green shinning in sunlight.

    Look at that comb! It almost looks a bit "Buttercup-ish" at the top.

    I know first time I saw him thought it was a V comb. Then I took the picture and zoomed in and thought it was pretty cool almost regular half way back then V'd out. Here is my Black one that I liked also he came with the others last week.

    How many toes does he have on each foot? The reason I ask is that he is bearded, with a V-comb cross, but he seems to lack muffs. I think you have a sultan cross rather than a polish cross.
