    Agreed, you have a "barnyard mix". My guess is that he has some Buff Orpington in him.

    For your reference - here is a picture of a Rhode Island rooster - you can see how different your boy (handsome and likely a mix) is:

    I am 99% sure that is one of the images that came up in my Google search for a sample picture to share with the OP - you have a good looking bird!

    yeah, I have to google to find images of beautiful birds like that.....some folks just have them in their backyard. Not that I'm having an inferiority complex or anything.....[​IMG]
