    I would say mixed breed - possibly a young Red Sex Link cockerel, do you know how old the bird is?

    At four months it must be a bantam breed? Generally bantams are not sold sexed most of the time because it is too hard to do without hurting them or with much accuracy. With a comb that big I would be suspicious it's a cockerel unless it's about to come into lay, which would be very unusual at four months old for a bantam; they usually mature more slowly than LF breeds.
