It looks as though it could be either. My guess is that it is a breed because it is not scruffy. The chicken doesn't have any cuts that I can see. There are breeds that don't have feathers in certain areas.

Sorry, I meant breed but auto correct had other ideas...

Appears to be a Ga Noi Game Fowl, the 'naked' gene has been exploited and purposely breed into that breed to produce different 'naked' pattern birds like that, in the neck region, primarily for 'eye' appeal in cock fighting circles... While others 'trim' the feathers to expand upon the nakedness for more eye appeal in the ring and so the feathers don't get in the way or provide a grabbing point for the opponent...

The trimming process is called 'dubbing' and it's not for the faint of heart, as it also generally involves removing the wattles and comb...

fighting cocks are also shaved in some areas and where and how seem to vary by individual involved

they endure  enough abuse I don't know why they have to heap on more.
