I am helping someone rehome this rooster. He was dumped into their yard about 3 months ago. He has started crowing so they have to move him on. No one seem to know what he is, so I am hoping that someone here might be able to help.

It is bantam size and can fly very well. It's comb is basically the normal single comb with smaller ones on it's side. He also has some feathers on his legs.

Langshans do come in blue however he looks like he may well have some araucana in him!

Looks like a blue Araucana cross to me. So sad when people dump unwanted birds.

Thanks for your responses. He has gone to a new home in the country. His new owner doesn't care what breed he is so long as he can produce some chicks. All good.
