    I want to say either gold brabanter or gold appenzeller spitzhauben, but I'm not sure how to tell those breeds apart, so hopefully someone who knows will pop in :)

    Here and here are some pictures of each breed.

    First is brabanter, second is spitzhauben :)

    After poking around a bit, I'm leaning toward gold brabanter. Does this rooster look pretty much like yours? He's a gold brabanter.

    To me, your rooster looks like a pretty mixed breed. However, I'm not entirely familiar with the breeds Pyxis suggested, so he could definitely be one of them.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] We're glad to have you.

    My first guess would be that he is just a mixed breed. He is very handsome, however!
