    This is what he looked like when I first got him...
    [​IMG]
    Then we found out HE was a ROO!

    Now we want to know what kind of Roo? He is 10 weeks old.

    and we would also like to know if anybody knows why his comb bends to one side, I have not seen many roos combs bend...anybody know why this happens?

    The color could be a Mealy Gray
    As for a breed I would say he is a cross.

    The bird isn't a pure duckwing nor is he pure "Silver" he looks to be a cross of Silver and Gold.
    Mealy can vary from breeding to breeding.
