    I was told he was and he looks like it but i'd like to get more opinions. The woman I bought him from thought he was an RIR so she was no help :p]

    I'm not sure. She said 6 months but I think hes older than that. This lady had quite a few chickens,I dont think she really knew much about him..

    I'd also like to see a better pic of him. He doesn't have the "dinosaur" look of my dark Cornish cockerel, this bird looks more dual purpose.

    He doesn't appear to have the substance in that picture that a cornish would have.
