    Friar Cluck crowed for the first time today. He's assertive but not agressive. White w gray bars, yellow legs and a bright red comb. My image uploads keep getting rejected, but here goes.

    Can't figure out how posting images work on this site. Pity.

    I agree with PoultryQueen101 that it looks like a Silver Campine rooster, but the pic is not very clear. Can you post a clearer, full body profile?

    Not a campine as they have grey legs, not yellow legs. Could you get a closer side shot of him?

    is he large fowl or bantam sized? I don't think that he is either a Silver Campine or an Egyptian Fayoumi (though he is similar to both, but doesn't have the right color of legs). My guess woudl be that he is a mix, maybe with some Old English Game or other game bird.

    He is a bantam. His markings are flecks rather than barrs and his white shoulders have a yellowish tinge.

    I will try to get a close-up of him in good light tomorrow!

    Thanks!
