    Definitely not an RIR. Given those white legs and that rose comb I'm thinking it's a mixed breed.

    I agree that it is not a R.I.Red.
    So that you know the R.I.Red comes both Single and Rose Comb.

    Mixed breed that probably has some Buff Orpington blood, judging by pink legs and color. :)

    Yes, I'm aware of that. It's why I mentioned the white legs. It's not often that one sees a rose comb RIR either.

    The rose comb would fit, but it's not a Wyandotte either as Wyandottes have yellow legs like RIRs.
