    Mixed breed, possibly has some Delaware and Brahma in the mix.

    Considering the beard and pea comb, I would say you have an Easter Egger rooster.

    I think he's probably a mix of mixes, not as simple as an A x B cross.

    Yes! possibly. Dad is white leg horn pictured in my profile pic and I do have an easter egger which could be mom. Its the green in the tail that throws me off.

    Do you think he will get waddles?

    I think he's got about all he's going to get. That pea comb is genetically linked to small wattles, so that's probably it for him.
