    Agree we need a profile pic. Are the missing feathers from his injuries or is he a naked neck?

    Guessing Black Sex-link, but might just be a random mix.

    His missing feathers are from his injuries. It's hard to get a good picture of him because he's scared.

    With the feathers just missing because of his injuries, I would definitely say he's a Black Sex Link. He'll be a pretty bird when his feathers grow back.

    I'm going to go against the grain an say Norwegian Jaerhons, but still could be Sex-link, mix, etc.
