    Looks like maybe a Buckeye or Buckeye cross rooster. He doesn't appear very old so maybe a five-six months old.

    Pretty sure it's a cockerel. If it's the same age as the others in the picture, for sure a cockerel.

    Thanks everyone. It's not the same age as the others. The three babies are 10 weeks old. We got this one from my sister, I'm thinking 4-5 months old, not sure though.
