    Edit: Is there really no chance it could be a pullet? [​IMG][​IMG] this is just too funny to me. Would he be any good as a meat chicken? [​IMG][​IMG]

    Thank you in advance!

    That's a rooster, as far as breed nothing stands out, possibly a mix, is it supposed to be a purebred?

    Agreed, I think you've got a little cockerel on your hands! [​IMG] Looks like a mixed breed to me, but I could be completely wrong.

    Sorry, but I agree that it is. cockerel with that much comb and wattles at the age you state. Pullets don't turn red until rhe point of lay, which is usually up in the 20's plus wks (varies with the bird).

    With those yellow legs and rose comb. Very likely a Wyandotte cross cockerel.
