    Hello, this only a guess, but a Hamburg maybe? I can't tell from the picture, but does it have a rose comb? Hopefully someone with more knowledge will look at this. I think maybe the leg coloring and the type of comb would help someone with more experience identify it. Hope this helps [​IMG]

    I agree- mutt-

    BUT:

    You should find out what he is from the source, if you can. That's a really unique coloration and you should try to recreate it. Just gorgeous!!

    NOT a SP Rock. He is a mix of something barred or cuckoo. Apparently the person you got him from is not really informed.
