    It looks like it might be a light Sussex mix due to the feathered feet.

    Hmm... maybe post in the "What Breed" forum.

    Considering the vulture hocks and crest... Could be something like Sultan x Sussex.

    With that comb he looks like a Light Brahma mix. If he has Sulyan in him he should have some extra toes.

    Light Brahma cockerel. No Sussex in that bird at all.

    Even with a vulture-hocked-Euro-Brahma, he's still a mix--considering the crest and mixed comb.

    He may not have sussex but he is a mix as Brahmas have rosecombs and no crests.
