I bought this boy for $5 from someone who placed an order for surprise chicks and they got alot of roos. They had no idea what he is. About 5 months old.

They said they guess he is Plymouth Rock, but I don't think. What are your thoughts?? These pictures might make him look laced, but he isn't. Just wanted to let you know ahead of time. They also had him in poor conditions, so I'm sure I can get him better looking with good feed and care.

He may be a silver pencil rock.
This is what I was thinking. His sexual development has been severely delayed, but I can see him eventually developing into something that looks more typical for a silver penciled Plymouth rock. Another possibility is that he is some kind of mixed layer strain the hatcheries sometimes sell. If you can find out from the previous owner which hatchery he came from, that would be helpful.
