Thanks! I checked the photo of orpington, it may be this one. We had a pullets hatched together with him, but she died and he is the only one of the breed we have.

I ride horses, but its not for fun. its a sport. its trusting an animal that is 10x your weight. guiding them over the jumps, and making sure they know that they did a good job.

Where did the eggs come from? 

 

I think he's a mix. Probably some Orpington in the ancestry, but I'm seeing yellow legs. Orpingtons have white skin, and it's dominant, so the pure Orp parent had to be back two generations at least. 

 

I'm also not sure what's up with the white patches above the earlobe?

Last year I got some eggs from a local farm, I don't remember clearly what they are, and we hatched them. I began to raise chickens only from last year, so at that time I had no idea of any breeds.
