    Silver Laced Wyandotte, cockerel. If he is small, he's a bantam. If not, he is a large-fowl (the Wyandotte breed comes in both types).

    The boys will have pink red combs at that age, the girls will stay orange yellow for a few months.

    Looks to be about the same size as the Turken, so probably not bantam. Looks like a poor quality Silver Laced Wyandotte cockerel.
