    Hi all,

    I apologize in advance for the low quality of the photo. A family member sent it to me, since they are having some difficulties with this stray that wandered onto their property. They are trying to keep it alive. We know that it is definitely a rooster. We just don't know what breed.

    Thank you for the assistance.

    Mixed breed. Maybe he has some buff orpington in him.

    What's a goldenboy?

    He just looks like a huge barnyard mix.

    Thank you all for the helpful replies. The owner does not want this rooster anymore and offered to go and shoot it to get it off my family members' property. :( In that case, we were attempting to determine the breed and see if anyone in the area was interested in adopting him.

    Thanks again everyone.

    That is good of you. I'd catch him with a fishing net and put him n a crate to assess his "niceness". He looks to be a big baby though if he has some buff Orpington in him as they are a docile breed.

    In my area someone would adopt him as he has nice colour as long as he isn't mean.
