    He should be brahma/cochin/orpington (and would appreciate clarification on a few others if nobody minds [​IMG])
    Any thoughts? We're pretty sure he's a rooster, was born in june/july time
    He and his compatriots are huge..I think we're feeding them too much

    Thanks muchly, think he's probably staying with us
    Thanks for all the advice so far!
    We got eggs under the brahma, orpington and cochin, most from penned in chooks but no guarantee a different rooster didn't get in
    here are the results, thoughts most welcome [​IMG] You can see some of our mature hens in here too.

    I can't see the comb from here... but I'm guessing standard Cochin

    Its just a kind of straight comb, nothing too fancy although not as big as the other roosters we have.
    Any idea what colour?

    I'm guessing its a white standard cochin pullet (hen).... it doesn't look rooish to me. Allthough... I can;t see the tail feathers that well. Ok, after looking at some pics... I agree... cockerel. I think.... LOL I'm assuming you must have a pretty good idea as you own it [​IMG]

    to me, from here it looks more like a hen.
    I dont see any saddle feathers and the comb isnt very large at all.

    When you say brahma/cochin/orpington... do you mean a mixture? Or those are the choices? LOL Man, I wish someone else would have a look... LOL I don't own Brahmas or Orps and are not that familiar with them

    If you do mean mix... I can see that.... looks like a Cochin with a bit of Light Brahma coming through (dark in the tail) and Orp colored legs???

    Yeah, looking at these pics, I go back to my original pullet guess....... though they can fool you sometimes.
