    So quite often people dump birds over our fence and I go out in the morning to a new visitor. Our neighbors do not have roosters either just a few hens.

    It happened again... he showed up a few days ago and I am wondering what breed he is? He is going to a new home but I would like to be able to say what he is besides just a rooster.

    American Game. Looks to be stag / cockerel that in another 45 days will be very pretty in deed. Color variant looks partly silverduckwing.

    Thank you! I appreciate your reply.

    He is going to a good home where I know he will grow old and have lots of lady friends. I myself do not do roosters. I love to hear them crow and they are beautiful but become a headache when they start attacking my old girls and occasionally in the past they have attacked my ducks.

    I'd say American Game as well.

    Games for me are very structured in their behavior around females, especially once mature.
