    Is this a Cuckoo Lavender Orpington? I'm new to chickens and not real sure on all of the breeds and feathering! If so, is it something relatively special... Should I keep him or put him in the freezer? I have wayyyy too many Roos and I'm trying to decide on which ones to cull but I need more of an expert's help! Thank you!

    Yep, that's a Lavender Orpington Rooster all right. If I were you, I would keep whatever rooster is the nicest, or has the best qualities that you few. But, if you're planning to butcher, I would choose the Orpington over the Egyptian Fayoumi in background. Much more meat.
