    It appears to be an American Game rooster.

    If I cross him with a game hen what could I sell the little roosters that hatched from them?

    Nothing that's called peddling and is very frowned upon in the gamefowl world

    Since you do not know the heritage of this rooster you would sell all his offspring as Crosses...
