    Cornish cross? But they are pure white. He has a grey tail and brown wings.

    Could be a red sex link roo. ISA Brown roosters have the white/red shoulder patterning.

    Just hazarding a guess. Being hybrids with no Standard to measure by, it could be a range of variations lol, not to mention he could be several generations removed from the original crossing. On a side note, did you get yours from a hatchery?? I've often had a crazy idea for trying out an ISA Brown roo.

    I did from a Hatchery that only hatchets Isa Brown for a government aid program(Nicaragua), You really can´t go wrong with an Isa Brown rooster its genetic background for egg production is off the charts(both parent lines of Isa browns end product can lay more than 300 eggs at 72 weeks of age)

    Not cornish cross, just a mix or cross of whatever chickens someone had. Not a pure breed. "Mutt," except that sounds rude.

    He's quite a pretty rooster!
