    Need help with the breed, guessing cockerel with the size of comb and wattles at 7 weeks old and has light pinkish legs. When i pick it up doesn't feel feathery like other 7 week olds, feels fluffy.

    I'd say that he is a White Plymouth Rock cockerel (or a mix, as he doesn't have yellow legs).

    could possibly be a white Orpington, but they're pretty rare I think. I tend to think horses, not zebras, so will also go with the white Rock as the most likely breed. Hatchery birds often have off leg colors.
