    We picked up a few birds the other day... just wondering what this young roo is? his comb flops and is a bit scabby in the pic from being cooped up in a cage that was too small

    He looks way heavier than my brown leghorn roosters. Probably a mixed breed roo, the color isn't quite right, either. And is that comb just floppy, or was it damaged? Maybe torn loose? He just looks like he's had some rough times.......I'd like to see a pic again in a few months, after some tlc.

    I don't know what he is but I don't see anything that says brown leghorn,red earlobes,black legs,black beak,color is way off,and he's to round.
