    Maybe a poor quality Silver Spangled Hamburg? He's a lovely little guy.

    Looks like a humburg mix as he is missing the grey legs, solid white ear lobes, and the color pattern isn't right on his feathers.

    He loks kind of like a red sex-link, but I'm not an expert by any means.

    Well, he's got a rose comb, so he is probably not a red sex link...

    I like the above posters saying he looks like a game, I would say Old English Game (of some unknown color) crossed with a Silver Spangled Hamburg.

    This is what a true SSHamburg looks like:

    He's a mixed-breed rooster, and who's to say that he isn't the product of two mixed breeds mating instead of two purebreds? You may never know the parentage.
