Do you think that maybe it has some sort of a growth on it's face that makes it look like that? You'd have to show these pictures to a vet.

Apparently, he is meant to have this strange turkey looking facial growth or wattle. poor thing.

trust Eileen on this one. And I agree, it is ugly. The ehad looks a bit like a vulture or turkey. The body is nice though.
Great shots. :)
