    Yes that is a cockerel . Partridge color . If he has a pea comb I would guess he is a Brahma .I am not up to date on Brahma colors . I do know they have a lot of newer colors .

    Definitely a roo. The thin light orange saddle feathers are a give away. Looks like a AsiaticX (feathered feet). I'd probably say Brahma x araucana. Doesn't look to have a normal tail. Hope you can keep him. He's going to be one sharp dressed man when he's mature.

    Thank you for your help, I was thinking maybe he was a partridge Cochin and I have looked up both partridge Cochins and Brahmas and they both look very similar so I am a little unsure of which breed he is

    A cochin is a single comb bird while the brahma is a pea comb. He looks to have a single comb.

    A Cochin has a single comb and Brahma a pea comb (three rows ) . Since his comb is very small I guessed it was a pea comb .

    Your bird is definitely a male.

    Looks like a Brahma or Brahma mix cockerel to me.

    He looks like a Brahma mixed cockerel.
