    It's hard to tell if he's a buff orpington or a buff cochin. If he has feathers on his feet then he is a cochin, if not then he is an orpington. Either way you're lucky. Both of those breeds are amazing roosters.

    Yes he has feathers on his feet and the longest spurs I ever seen. Thanks!

    Buff Cochin. Make sure you trim those spurs, since they can cause problems for both him and any hens he tries to breed. I use a sturdy dog nail trimmer to clip off and blunt the ends of spurs.
