    That's a cockerel - the crowing was just extra evidence.

    Cockerel.

    Just as an fyi, I don't think those are the correct parent breeds. From that cross I'd expect a rose combed, white legged bird.

    Ya I don't see buff Orpington in him at all. I got this one as a rescue chick that they said was from a Buff Orpington Roo and probably Wyandotte hen.
