    Is he a bantam or regular sized? Looks like a game bird to me and looks like he has leg mites.

    Game Cock for sure. We have ALOT of those running around here :( Not sure if they get away or are just let loose :rant People tend to think it's humane to let/dump their animals loose rather than turn them in :mad: They really don't realize it's a game of survival being turned loose. Lately been seeing egg laying breeds in neighborhoods too. The sad part is you see a hen with a bunch of chicks, then a few days later she's alone = mongoose, cats & dogs :hit

    Not sure on breed, would have to agree with above, but wanted to also agree with @drumstick diva. He looks like he has leg mites or some other leg issue you need to get fixed before he joins any flock.

    Looks like a crossbred to me. Possibly a game cross, but looks to heavily built to be pure.
