Can someone please identify the breed or mix of my 26 week old cockerel? I named him "Willy Dixon" after the songwriter of the blues classic "Little Red Rooster."
I thought he might be a Rhode Island Red, but them he started to grow more colors. He has a white spot on top on his back at the base of the greenish tail feathers.  I saw a photo inline of "Murphy Brood Rooster" for sale that looked almost identical. 

 I can't keep him in my urban neighborhood, and would like to sell or swap him for a hen. What dollar amount can I ask?

Thank you! Your replies are appreciated!

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

He looks like a classic Barnyard Mix to me. I'm not seeing any specific breed. If you can find someone to swap for a hen, more power to you. Around here, I can't give cockerels away unless they're a rare breed like true Ameraucana or Marans. My mixed breed guys just go on the table.

 

Oh, and :welcome
