    Might be a cuckoo Marans?
    Just a guess.

    Welcome to BYC - so we have a boy with yellow legs, pea(ish) comb and lightly feathered shanks -- looks like you have a mixed breed boy.

    Thank you all for the replies. If this is a mix and if I breed this with cuckoo hen, what would I get? I heard that Cuckoo Marans also have feathers on their legs. Here is a close up of the comb.

    My goodness, his feet look terrible. Does he have scaly leg mites. They badly need treatment. Doesn't look like he stands on them well. He is not a BR he doesn't have yellow legs, and BR's don't have feathered legs. Though I can't see any feathering on him.
