    Looks like a Dominique-Cochin mix.

    Crossbred. Looks to be mostly Cochin, but he got that rose comb from another breed. I'd say he is at least 75% Cochin with that shape. If he is only 50% Cochin then the other half must be Wyandotte to keep that round shape.

    Is he not a dominique rooster mix ? What’s the difference between Wyandotte’s and Dominique.

    Wyandottes are shaped different. They are shorter legged and much more rounded shape.
