    It's definitely not a Buff Orpington. It looks to me like a mixed breed; perhaps some sort of Red Broiler.

    If from a hatchery, my guess is a red broiler. If from a breeder, I'm thinking a Red x Orpington, something like that.

    x2. Prepare for a massive too when he's full grown. Careful keeping him with your hens. My old Red Broiler roo crushed 2 of my hens just trying to mount them when he was still young and rowdy. They get to 12-13 pounds and even being gentle they have a lot of brute strength.
