    Mixed breed. My guesses of what breeds it's mixed with are Easter egger, and sometimes with white pink legs like Sussex or Orpington.

    Possibly. The person we got it from was just messing around, trying out cross breeds. I am wondering if this was one. :thumbsup

    Mixed breed, it looks very large, is it? Under that assumption I think it may be a Brahma, EE cross + ????

    You know, it's still a young one, but pretty big for age. I don't know if it's a roo though.

    It clearly has saddle and hackle feathers, those are rooster traits.

    Oh, wow! I didn't know about that! I haven't heard it crow yet so I wasn't sure.

    I agree that it is some type of mixed rooster. It has the tail feathers growing in and the red feathering on the wings.
