    I'm no expert, but from what experience has showed me, looks kind of like cross to me...[​IMG] Not sure with what. It' the random golden hackle feathers that throw me off.

    how many toes does he have? if he has five, then he could be a dorking... otherwise, he's probably just a cross

    With him being close to 20 lbs...there's GOTTA be a largefowl bird in there. Possibly a black Jersey Giant? Although with his type, he doesn't really have the Jersey Giant build?

    He could have some Jersey Giant, some Wellsummer... a cornish/game mix with another dual purpose bird.
