    This handsome devil showed up shortly after I got my polish rooster and after I was unable to find his origins I just had to keep him. I'd like to get some input on what breeds he might be a mix of. His name is Dundee since he showed up on a walk-about. In the second pic he's with my buff orphington (Marigold) and my australorp (Poppy), he's pretty big.

    Thanks, there are some similar colors, now I just have to figure out what made him bigger and gave him black feet with that pretty comb. When he showed up I told the hubby there was a new handsome man in my life. haha

    With his large size, modified pea comb, and slight leg feathering I'd bet he has Brahma in him.

    no muffs, and I bet doesn't have 5 toes. Doesn't look like Salmon Faverolles roo at all.

    He’s got lovely coloring! Looks to be a mixed breed. Possibly a Brahma-Faverolles cross.

    Thanks for all the help so far everyone. I'll have to look into some of those breeds. He's so handsome I'd like to find another unique looking rooster to replace him. He's gotten really aggressive so I'll be replacing him soon. Might be why no one claimed him after he showed up at my place. Today his first chicks hatched so we'll see what they end up looking like. :)
