    Hello,
    I looked through the breed thread and am still not sure what breed or sex this chicken is. It is a rescue chick, it will be 9 weeks old this week. It is very small in comparison to our orpingtons. Can anyone help idrntify its breed and sex? Thank you!

    Mixed breed cockerel would be my guess. (I'm not sure what sort of breeds though)

    I agree, mixed breed cockerel. He looks like he is part light Brahma.

    I don't think he's mixed, I think he's a light Brahma cockerel. he may be a bantam, there's not much for scale in the pics but it's a possibility.
