    Is my rooster a red jungle fowl? He looks to me to look like the Murray McMurray rooster on their website.

    You can't see his tail in the pic but it is irredescent black. His legs are yellow.

    He looks a lot like a Welsummer except that a welsummer's ears are red.. probably a breed that lays white eggs- probably some sort of Mediterranean breed.

  8. Looks like a game roo. Perhaps a Old english. I would not say he is a red jungle. Pretty boy, yellow legs.
