    I'm not completely sure on breed, but I'm pretty sure that "Pollo" is a cockerel.

    He may be a White Rock, White Leghorn, or other white breed/mix. White breeds look so similar that it is hard to tell breed until they're older. If he's a Leghorn, he'll develop large white earlobes. If not, he'll have red earlobes and will likely be a Plymouth Rock.

    I'm thinking that Polo is likely a White Leghorn rooster, but if he develops red earlobes, he is a White Plymouth Rock.

    Are you sure he is 12 weeks old? He should be far more developed at 12 weeks. What are you feeding him?
