    A few months ago this rooster wandered into my yard with two hens that looked just like him. The hens ended up getting eaten by predators because they refused to stay in the coop, but he's still alive and is the main rooster of my flock.

    He's gorgeous and I'd like to get more of his breed. So, what breed is he?

    Mixed breed. Can you post a shot that shows his comb better?

    He's a real wiggle worm whenever I try to take a picture of him, so that would be difficult. But I do know he has a large rose comb, if that helps.

    I'm guessing he might be a Hamburg/Cochin cross.

    Okay. Thank you.

    I was searching the internet for any chickens that look like him, and somebody did actually have another one that was a Hamburg/Cochin cross. So, you're probably right.
