    Welcome to BYC! He looks like a mixed breed, probably related to some game breed.

    I agree he looks like a game bird cross, upright stance, long neck -

    Your bird is definitely a mixed breed rooster. He may have some Rhode Island Red in him, but he also appears to have some pea combed breed/cross in him, such as Easter Egger.

    Your rooster looks like a Rhode Island Red/gamebird mix to me. He doesn't appear to be a Buckeye.
