    Might I suggest that you take him outside into the sunshine to get a really good picture of him? On my monitor the colors are rather indistinct and muddied. But, that could be just my monitor. They might display just fine on everyone elses. Just a suggestion. [​IMG]

    Also, is it my imagination, or has he sustained an injury to his comb? Or is that just the way he is?

    yeah i got him from an older gentle man who had them out side free range and his comb just hangs like that and it got cold and that is y there are dark areas on the tip of his comb , but now that i have him he is in a new coop with heat lamps straw and all the fresh food and water him and the others want and plenty of room

    From the shape of his comb and the dark spangles on his chest, could he have some hamburg in him?
