    I'm wondering if this might be a Faverolle?

    I know his head has been plucked! (I just got him, the other same coloured rooster was beating him up horribly). He's a big bird, has leg feathering on just the outside.

    He also has horrible dark patches on his comb and wattles, I'm wondering if that could be frostbite or being pecked at a lot? I'll post these questions to the Help section.

    thanks

    It's a cross breed. Given the pea comb & leg feathering I'd assume a Brahma cross.

    The reasoning behind me saying he is a dark brahma, is that he has the basic silver pencilled pattern, a pea comb, she said he has leg feathering, NYREDS, why do you say it is a cross?

    Yes, he has leg feathering only on the outside of his legs - and the other rooster who was bullying him has the same colouration. He's a big bird, bigger than my Barred Rock x Amercauana roosters who are 4 almost 5 months old.

    I'm sorry, I am having a horrible time trying to get pictures to show up, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong!

    Quote:Please note that I have already agreed with you. Why are you trying to start something with me? This is the second or third time you've been borderline confrontational.
