    This is Matilda.

    Matilda is about 7 weeks old and I believe (hope) female.

    Does anyone have any idea what breed Matilda is?

    At 7 weeks that's too much red in the wattles. ...Matilda needs a new, more masculine, name

    Do you think so? Actually, he/she is 8 weeks now.

    Have you any idea what breed(s) he/she might be?

    I think Matilda probably has some Aracauna blood, but I'm not sure what color legs your birds are supposed to have. A profile shot would help also, to see the actual shape of the bird.

    Definitely a cockerel, with that coloring. I was going to say you'll know if it's part Aracuana if it lays colored eggs, but I guess that's out [​IMG]. I'd just go with mixed breed cockerel and change the name to Matt.

    . If I remember correctly he/she came from a brown egg. I'm a bit confused if it's a cockerel as there is no comb.

    cresting tends to suppress comb....and size of what does develop would deeps on comb type of what is present. Your bird is s cockerel.
