Light Brahmas have feathered legs, while CWS don't. ☺ I can't really see from the picture....

Pretty sure it would be a Wyandotte, then! :)

That's a pretty tough one....are its hackle (neck) and saddle (around the base of the tail) feathers pointed or rounded at the ends?

the feathers are more of a pointy shape to them

Is there any chance that he's a younger cockerel who hasn't developed fully yet? :) Pointed feathers is a male trait, though it appears to be a pullet from the picture.

I"m pretty sure that's a light Brahma cockerel. 

 

A profile pic of the bird standing in good lighting would help. But I'm pretty sure I'm seeing saddle feathers and a pea comb. 

 

Brahmas have feathered legs and pea combs

 

Wyandottes have rose combs and clean legs

 

Rock have straight combs and clean legs. 

 

Sussex have straight combs and clean white/pink legs.
