    He's... Oh.... 5 weeks old now? I was told he was something else, but I'm having my doubts.. I'd like to hear what you all say before I go on with what I was told.

    I would say Leghorn as well, because of the white earlobe beginning to start. But then, it could just be the ear coverts are screwing up my brain! LOL

    Doesn't look much like a Leghorn. Those aren't the lobes you're seeing they are the coverts. Too young to be showing that much lobe. The lobes are red. I'd say a White Rock of possibly one of the meat crosses. Pretty heavy shank-looks like he'll be a big boy.

    I had a Cornish X I'd gotten rid of, out grew this thing in no time.. This one is the same size as the barred rocks, red sex-links and wyandotte I'd gotten around the same time.

    Well, it was supposed to be a Buff Orpington roo. The wife picked it up from the local co-op.. Not sure if I'll keep him or not.. Guess I'll just wait and see how his attitude is.

    Not sure because mine are not that feathered yet, but could be a sex link roo. I have comets and they look like that. My boys are sweeties though. [​IMG]
