    I have a rooster that i cannot figure out what he is a mix of! the farmer from where i got his egg only has pure breed layers and roosters so he can only be a mix between 2 breeds

    his name is Barbaroh and he is:

    * 6-7 pounds
    * 1 year and 3 months old

    here is what he looks like. (he is currently molting and his long tail feathers were the first to go)

    You're never going to know for sure, especialy not knowing the potential parent breeds.

    Clean white legs....white skin is dominant. The most common clean white skinned birds are Orptingtons and Sussex. The Colombian coloring could come from a Ligth Sussex....mixed with what, hard to say. It would be something straight combed, besides that ???
