    We came home from Church yesterday afternoon and found this little guy (at least I think it's a guy) strutting his stuff for our girls who were in their run.

    What is he? A wild chicken? Do those even exist? Or a mix of some sort that must have escaped his coop?
    He wasn't afraid of people at all and he spent the night roosting in the tree next to our girls run.

    Thanks

    Very colorful escaped mutt. Possibly of Game heritage.

    He is still hanging around today. We did notice that he is quite small. He is actually smaller than some of our girls. And his comb is also not very full either. Could this just mean he is still young?

    He looks like a bantam game rooster. Pretty.

    Looks like a game mix. Probably has some Old English Game or American Game in him.
