    looks like a mix maybe as no pure breed comes to mind

    I know he isn't pure bred... but didn't know what he was mixed with or whatever

    He could be a buff colored roo crossed over a barred or dark hen. One or both of his parents were probably mixes as well. But you're right, he would be a great breeding roo for a mixed flock.

    His black and white chest area reminds me of my ancona and exchequer leghorn girls. (I have a little trouble telling them apart!)
