    Just found out that she is a he in the last week, I have seven chickens altogether and three of them I have just found out are cockerels. This one is now called Neville, he is very friendly and likes to be picked up which is a blessing :) I just would like to know his breed because he is very beautiful with lovely colouring

    It's a Rock- but looks like a cross of colors that may not be standard. Similar to crele- but I'm not sure on the exact crele pattern requirements.

    I am no expert but according to the pointed hackle and saddle feathers as well as the tail feathers I am 99.9% sure you have a Roo....crele mixed...?

    Thank you so much, i think you are right, i have just googled that name and the pictures that have come up look like him, although he is a lot bigger, i think he will be a giant because I am not sure he is fully grown at the moment.

    Colour pattern is Crele & it's a male. Appears to be a cross breed. Not a Rock as it seems to have a pea comb.

    Wyandottes have rose combs not pea combs.

    Creole Rooster is what you have, a nice one too, I like the creole coloring looks cool.

    Crele [not Creole] is a colour not a breed.
