Cardinal or a chicken at the feeder

Excused the poor quality of the photo’s but I thought it unusual enough to post. This is some kind of mutant male Cardinal that spent a short time at our feeder today. The wife says it looks more like a chicken then a Cardinal.

That is one comical looking critter. :D Seems there is more missing than pigmentation, though. The tuft doesn't even look right. Thanks for sharing. I never knew this condition even existed in birds.

She's a real beauty. Be nice if she stays in your yard. She is Leucistic, which is a not harmful lack of pigment in the feathers. It's not debilitating as Albinism is.
