What The Hell Is This?

OK, this is a pretty creepy picture. I know it's a close up, but it doesn't get any better looking if you take a step back. Colorful for sure. Unusual, yes. Uncomfortable looking, definitely.

Now I know there are a lot of country folk out there who probably know what this is. I'm thinking a rooster or chicken, which just seems obvious to me, but what kind? And why the red growths like that? Do all of this type of bird have those? Is it a disease? Is it the Elephant Bird?

I know the Hags probably know, because not only are they brilliant, but they are also country girls. Please help. Also, please let me know if you knew what it was from the first picture, before you Googled.

Here's another shot just in case you wanted to see more of him/her/it:

Not a clue what that is. Looks like that disease some people get. Don't know the name of that, either.
