    I have no idea. How old. Still young of course. The man at the store said the color was called "pardon" which is portugues for partridge. If it were s cockatiel I'd say it was "pearl". Me we seen this color/pattern on a chicken before.

    Just going off the shape of the head and heaviness of the legs, I think you got yourself a something along the lines of a Dixie Rainbow, Pioneer, or Freedom Ranger cockerel (all proprietary names for various colorful broilers.

    Looks like a mixed breed to me, probably a cockerel.

    The place where I bought it from assured me it was a female. They havnt lied to me before but maybe he was mistaken. Lord I hope it's is not a cockerel.
