    A friend received this rooster when ordering chicks from a Hatchery. Any guesses as to what breed he is?

    Reminds me of silver spangled hamburg, but that comb looks wrong to me [​IMG] [​IMG]

    looks like a hamburg, also looks like he has a mix of rose and buttercup type comb.

    Other than that monster comb he is a good looking SSHamburg [​IMG]
