    that is a rooster. he has pointed hackle feathers. He has what looks like a pea comb, those usually dont get that big.

    that is not a delaware. he has some red leakage all over him.

    Can you get a full body shot? If he holds hs tail low, he could be a cubulya (sp?) Cross. Or maybe a light brahma cross if he has feathered legs. Look like he has a pea comb

    A dominate roo will mount a lower ranking one to show dominance

    He's a roo and I can't see the comb well from that pic but it's probably a mixed comb, one straight comb parent and one pea or rose comb parent.

    he has no feathers on his legs i will get a body shot of him tomorrow and the rest of the girls ... i thought he might have been a cross but i never had that breed before

    Definitely a mix, and a boy. Not sure on what is in the mix.. Probably not EE since they are not common in our area. He looks like a cross I had in colour (RSL x BR) - and I think his white is a dominant white gene. Can't be sure.. May have Chantecler in him!
