Interesting how the guinea fowl like to be "King of the castle" so to speak.
Is your rooster a rose combed bird? It's a bit hard to tell from the angle of the photo, and while I am aware of rose combed RIR's we don't have them here as far as I know. RIR's here have full single combs.

Your rooster looks like an Easteregger not RIR. Does he have facial puffs?

You have a beautiful Easter Egger rooster. He looks similar to mine. How many toes does he have?

The rooster is an easter egger, not a R.I. Red. There is a world of difference. The comb, muffs and beard, leg color, feather color are all different than a R.I. Red. And the muffs and beard are not called "puffs."

He has a Rose Comb he is quite big Didn't know the Easter Eggers got that big. I have looked at pic's on the Net and some RIR look like him and some Easter Eggers look like him also. I have more Pic's that I took today Ill try and upload them over the next few days.
