    I adopted a 6-month-old rooster from a lady in town that had one too many roosters. She said he is a Wyandotte mix, but I wanted to see if that seems right based on his photo.

    Thanks in advance!

    It would be easier to tell if you had a picture of him standing upright. He sure is a handsome guy.

    Thanks for reposting the photo. My mobile doesn't give me a whole lot of options when trying to post a photo. I'm going outside to try and get a photo of him standing tall.

    Well, I guess I'll have to get a photo later with my telephoto lens. The girls were beating on him a bit and chased him into my blackberry bushes. At least he can relax in there for now, since they don't care too much about going in there!
    Jeez, girls! Haha

    If he had one wyandotte parent he should have one of those funky mixed combs, that just looks like a small straight comb. Although straight combs do crop up in wyandottes, I guess. A better pic will help.

    Finally got some halfway-decent photos of him!

    How old is he? If he is not a Splash Blue Laced Red Wyandotte he had a parent that was. [​IMG] This is my Splash Blue Lace Red Roo. And yours looks a awful lot like mine
