    Looks like a low quality Marans. How old is he?

    No breed except Barnyard Mix.

    Likely a mix of mixes. Color, comb and feathered legs could indicate Marans blood, but Marans have white skin and this guy has yellow. White skin is dominant, so it would take more than one cross to get a yellow skinned bird.

    Other than that, it's really hard to say. Straight combed and yellow skinned, so many breeds to choose from......

    Oh probably. He's still young and will fill out. His hackle and saddle feathers will fill in also, he'll probably be a very showy looking bird in a few more months.
