    He's Growing Many New Feathers So He Looks Kinda Rough.

    With those yellow legs I'm thinking he's an American Game mixed breed rooster.

    American Game and it is a stag / cockerel that is not quite into mature feather. Give him another 45 days and he will be a real knockout in the looks department. Note very little development in the spurs so he is likely less than 7 months old. Once feathers in possibly a little before you need to keep him properly separated from other mature rooster regardless of breed.

    Pretty Sure He's A Stag Now. & Hes Losing Many Feeather Due To The Fall Season He'll Look Nice In A Month Or Two. I'll Put A Picture Up When He's Done Growing His Feathers

    He is a stag but not yet a bullstag. Behavior change will be marked with that transition. His comb and wattles will also fill out a lot then as well.
