    Was supposed to be a light brahma, but has bare feet.

    Not a Brahma, as no feathered feet and single comb instead of pea comb.

    Right color of feet and comb type but wrong tail for Light Sussex.

    Right tail/comb for Delaware, but wrong leg color.

    Also has more barring in body, but not quite dark enough for a Black Sex Link rooster nor California Grey.

    My best guess mixed breed barred/white....momma may have been barred but daddy had dominant white as you almost have ghost barring.

    Barnyard mix.

    With those bare pink legs and the barring in the black feathers, I'd say it's a Light Sussex X Delaware mix.

    Thanks, he's a big boy, eats a ton. He came with two light brahma hens, and neither of them eat as much as he does.

    He's a beautiful bird for sure! If you're inclined for meat birds, I bet his male chicks from those Brahma hens will make beautiful roasters.

    Looks like a Delaware mix to me.
