It looked like a chicken at first glance. Your guess on the breed is the same as mine.

So do you think he is a king or a roman giant? Witch is bigger than an American giant. And also what offspring would I get if I cross a king or a giant to a mixed feral breed?

You'd have to cross your utility meat pigeon back to each generation down of its young for few to several generations, and then you should end up with a purer drain that characteristically are like this one. Ferals are decent to mix with meat pigeons and homers as those are typically what they are more over from.

Let female if she is, get comfy in her own cage against or close to him, n when she is boss of her cage put him in with her. Keep him away from other pigeons and make as can't even see them, and he will get desperately lonely.. Or he will get mean from being alone. Lol
