    He's almost as large as the chair he's standing next to. No way is there any bantam in his background. Bantam crosses usually turn out to be somewhere in between the size of the parents.

    Brahmas have pea combs, so he's not a Brahma. Unless he's some recessive throw back, it's possible.

    Straight comb means he should be a Cochin (breed) and the color is called Colombian.

    Depending on where he came from, it's possible for him to be a mixed breed bird, also. Colombian Cochins aren't very common.
