    Cockerel, and he is a mixed breed. His earlobes look to be partially white, and cochins should have yellow or blackish[on dark colors] legs, not pink, but the pink legs are dominant so he is crossed with something with pink legs and probably white earlobes.

    I was thinking mixed cockerel, also. Those white/pink legs lend themselves to Orpington or Sussex blood.
