    I don't believe it is a breed. I think it's the male red sex-link.

    Definitely a mixed breed cockerel; I agree it might be a male Red Sex Link.

    Yes it defiantly looks like a mix, if it's not a red sex link, than it would be a white leghorn mix.

    Mixed breed, possibly with a Red Sex-link in his ancestry.

    Thank you all so much. He was given to me and we were told he was a Broiler meat bird, but did not look like that to me. He has been a nice young gentleman. We have two delaware hens that are comletely head over heels.

    He's definitely hefty enough, if you put him over some decent Delaware hens you would wind up with some nice cockerels for the table if you get hungry.
