    I recently acquired this rooster. Since I'm new to raising chickens, I'm wondering what breed or breeds he is. Thanks for your help!

    interesting. how big is he? he is beautiful by the way. he has very feathered legs which suggests a few breeds. The comb is wrong for a brahma. Possibly a pekin (cochin bantam) or cochin depending on his size. [​IMG]

    Not having been around chickens a whole lot (only at fair exhibits), I would say that he is about average size. I'm not entirely sure how old he is, but I know he is at least 8 months old.
