    This chicken is twice the size of the others and somewhat aggressive. I have no clue what it is. [​IMG]

    Mixed breed rooster.

    If he's that large, he could be a Dixie Rainbow or Pioneer, one of the slow growing meat birds. Or, he could be a random barnyard mix. If you can't keep him, you might try advertising him as a meat bird flock rooster. Lots of folks are wanting to add some size/meatiness to their flocks.
