    What breed is this little cockerel? My friend is selling him for $5 and says he came from a TSC bin labeled as a RIR. We know he's not a RIR (lol) so what is he?

    His proportions are a little different than a Leghorn, I think. Leghorns tend to be more slender. He could be a Cornish Cross, except maybe not if he doesn't have big feet (those things have huge, thick feet). Other than that, he could be a White Plymouth Rock.

    He has gigantic eyes!

    My TSC gets in a mixture of RIR and RIW (Rhode Island White, but not APA standard because they are straight comb). It could be that. Most people see Rhode Island and automatically think red.

    I was thinking he was a RIW but then I also considered the White Rock and Cornish X.

    He seems to have legs/feet more slender than a Cornish X would, from the bit I can see.

    Could be a White Leghorn or White Rock. Cornish Xs are generally larger at this stage. Definitely a cockerel.
