    That looks like a white cochin. It looks like a hen to me but I am not a hundred percent sure.

    Maybe a Cochin Faverolle mix? Definitely a cockerel though. Cute little guy!!

    it is a cockerel, sorry.

    As to what it's mixed with, hard to say. Can you contact the seller and see what the possibilities are? Bears and muffs are't too common, especially with a straight comb. Maybe a D'uccle? It doesn't look vulture hocked at all, but I have no idea how dominant those are.

    Probably a mix of mixes. Both the single comb and yellow skin are recessive traits. The only breeds I can think of with muffs, single combs, and feathered legs are D'Uccles and Faverolles, but they both have white skin.
