    Can anyone tell me what kind of rooster this is and why his comb is flopped over? He is an auction rescue. [​IMG]

    Thanks that's my guess too. He seems healthy other than the folded over comb. I have wormed him and kept his isolated for a couple weeks. Just never had one with a folded over comb.

    I agree, he's an Easter Egger. Some birds just have flopped over combs, and nothing is really wrong with them. He's a pretty bird!

    Easter egger, the hatchery may have introduced some leghorn blood to boost production, making the comb more of a mix vs the classic pea comb.
