    My guess is a mixed breed with some white Rock in there somewhere. If he were pure white Rock he should have yellow legs. Speaking of which, does he have scaly mites? Can't see in the pic very well, but something looks off with his legs. Actually, the whole bird looks off in those pics--he's hunched over and does not look well. It may be just the pic, only you'll know that for sure.

    It looks like he has 5 toes. Maybe he is a single combed white Dorking, or a Dorking cross.
