Looks like some kind of Barred Rock cross or a Delaware cross to me. 

 

It's the shape that makes the breed, and the color that makes the variety.

A nice big rooster. His hens next to him, their combs are like 3 times as small as his, as for the wattles also. And notice his tail feathers, those nice big rounded ones are sickle feathers. Only roosters have those. thumbsup.gif

Oh ok... Thank you very much for the explanation. I was hoping it would start laying soon, but since she is a he, that might complicate things.

He rather looks like the pix I have been seeing of Columbian Rock roosters in the research I've been doing in trying to determine my little Columbian Rock's gender...but I'm new to chickens, so the others may be seeing something I'm missing.

Best wishes! I hope he won't turn into a meanie. Your other hens are gorgeous, and also very curious I can tell in picture #2.

I also agree with you, Thinking it's Delaware/Colombian Rock, but both breeeds have yellow shanks, this guy has pink shanks. So I'm guessing a mix between..

Thank you. And yes they are very curious. The Rooster definitely keeps his distance from me, but some of the others are much calmer. I know some are RIR's but as for all the others I'm not sure.
