    He's a mixed breed bird. One parent was probably a barred Rock or a cuckoo Marans (are his legs white?), the other parent was something silver based most likely.

    No his legs are not white they are yellow. I got him from a farm in San Antonio they didn't want to sell him to me because they told me he was a very special rooster but they did sell him to me. I forgot to ask what breed he was but here are pics of his offspring

    He's definitely a mixed breed rooster with a Barred Rock parent.
