    Ever see the rooster in the "Ambien" Ad on TV? A big Red guy, small head, black tail and HUGE waddles (they always give me a giggle!)

    What kind IS he??
    ANyone?
    I'd LOVE one!!!! (Just for the entertainment value of those waddles!) LMAO!

    It is a RIR I could think of a zillion better Roosters they could have picked.

  5. It is a single comb Road Island Red as far as I know.

    I am SURE they picked him for his "comic relief" qualities as opposed to how pretty he was...
    like I said-- I giggle like an idiot every time I see those waddles on that itty bitty head!

    yep, single comb rhode island red.. looks dubbed. so frostbite? they could have picked a better breed (and bigger waddles etc) But to the outside world. Rhode island reds are the only type of chickens [​IMG]
