    Recently, I bought a 25 week old Rooster and I wanted to know what breed it is?

    I would also lie to know the Pros and Cons and rating or maybe a website that talks about this rooster?

    Well he has a rose comb, and is buff in color. Clean legged. Upright tail. Are his ear lobes white or red I can't tell by the picture. Do you know what other breeds the people you got him from have. Is possibly a cross of what they have? Are those spurs that I see? Or a fifth toe? If those spurs are that long I would question that he is 25 weeks old. He may be a buff leghorn if he has white earlobes and is a full size chicken. There are banty breeds that look like that.

    He's a mixed breed, and quite possibly several generations mixed, not just "AxB".

    I agree, look at the size of his spurs, he is not 25 weeks old, I would assume a banty mutt as well.

    Looks like a crossbreed. Might have some Wyandotte in him, accounting for the rose comb, as well as a buff breed like Orpington. He's older than 25 weeks, probably around a year of age.
