    This is my rooster Nigel, he is a little under 2 years of age. I have within that time tried to find out what breed of chicken he is. If anyone can help that would be great!

    Agree he looks like a classic Barnyard Mix.

    Yeah , he is definitely a hybrid but due to his colouring and looks I think he is a Plymouth Rock x Lavender Arauncana

    Thanks everyone, I did figure he was a mix. I still would like to know what kinds of breeds may be involved with him.

    Hi , I would say that he has some lavender araucana in him from his lavender colouring and also his feathered head crest. Some Plymouth Rock or gold leghorn from his tall , bulky structure and he has the face type of a leghorn.
