That is a Lavender Cochin cockerel. I had the matching hen, came from Ideal Poultry, and Shadow died two years ago. Miss her, but you definitely have a lavender Cochin bantam
Looks like a Self Blue booted bantam to me. Booted Bantams don't have beards or muffs--that is the only characteristic that separates them from the very similar looking Belgian Bearded D'Uccle (which does have a muff/beard).
A Lavender Cochin is a possibility, but I'm leaning towards that not being the case since this bird has vulture hocks. Cochins should not have vulture hocks, though some lesser-quality specimens do.
Whatever he is, he's a very handsome little cockerel!
