    Wow, great link! Much better photo and I think that it is the same photo of the same bird. He is really handsome! His comb looks more like a pea comb. Since he is listed as a wild rooster, his is likely a mixture of several breeds. His coloration is a golden duckwing.

    Thanks for the coloring info, that's really impressive looking on any breed.
    I got the Dusty Boots info from the magazine, I didn't give them credit for the photo in my original post. That was the only info about the cover shot available.
