    To me, it has the colorings of a Sulmtaler but it looks too small. Sulmtalers have a broader frame. So I'm going to say it's a Golden Duckwing Old English Game Rooster. What a beauty!

    Some sort of gamebird, maybe American Game.

    What kind of comb does he have? Can you get a better, closer picture of him?

    going by simply color is difficult. I have a rooster that is very similar who is a multi-generation barnyard mix...

    So far that's the best picture I can get. He is a stray that has been lurking in the woods by the coop for about 2 weeks. He's obviously been introducing himself to my hens while we were at work. His comb is flat, maybe a pea comb? I cannot catch him to quarantine and don't want to kill him. My hens are not upset at his presence and he's not attacking me so...... we'll see. If I get a better picture, I'll post it. Thank you all for your help!

    that's definitely a game chicken. He has a sloppy pea comb- typical of pea comb mixed with straight comb.. very common in game chickens.
