He is a very handsome heavy breed crossbred.

Mixed breed.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Definitely a mixed breed rooster. Given his color and the white legs, I'm thinking he may have some Partridge Rock and some Orpington in his ancestry.

He may have some Golden Laced Orpington in him.

White skin is dominant. The most common breeds in the US with white skin seem to be Orpington, Marans and Sussex, in pretty much that order. All those breeds also have straight combs, so that's no help. Marans usually have feathered legs, so you could probably rule that out. I'd agree there's some Orpington there, but I don't think he's as simple as a breed A x breed B mix. I think he's a mix of mixes and no other breed is jumping out, sorry.
