Hi! I traded a Polish Roo for this fellow. I am trying to move away from so many ornamentals. He is only five months old! He only began to crow a week ago. The woman who brought him to me had NO idea his breed, and is new to chicken keeping. I guess that he could be a mix, but of what? He is already so big, and has a lot of growing still to do!

Thanks for any input!

Boy is he gorgeous! Could he be an Isabel leghorn? Looks like he has red earlobes so perhaps not pure but a mix? Either way he is stunning.

Wow he's so pretty! I'm thinking that he is a mix of some sort. I think he could have a little Easter Egger in him, but I'm not sure. Iv never seen his breed before. Hope you can get some better answers. ;)

He's a mix. Looks like he might be self blue/lavender. It's a recessive gene, so he is likely a second or third generation mixed breed. It doesn't express in first generation crosses. No telling what went into him other than it was mostly single comb, yellow skinned breeds.
