    I bought this group a couple of days ago. What did I get? From what I found the roo apparently has a butter cup comb.

    Looks like Delawares maybe but this is a complete guess I'm no expert

    He's a mixed breed rooster. He may have some Delaware but he's not pure. His body type is wrong, color is off and those white earlobes show maybe leghorn ancestry. The comb isn't really a buttercup comb, can you get a better shot of it?

    And is it just how he's standing, or does he move normally? His stance is all weird, like his legs hurt or something.
