    Thanks

    I thought he wasn't light enough around his neck but nice for confirmation!

    He is to dark for a brown leghorn. If he was a brown leghorn he would have yellow legs. Could it be a golden copper maran or gold copper maran cross?

    Could you please get us a good straight side on picture? From the picture you provided, he has the right feather color for a dark brown Leghorn (there are two different colors of "brown" Leghorn - light and dark) but he should have white earlobes and yellow legs for both. A good side on pic would allow us to see his breast and wing color as well as his stance, carriage, and body type.

    I need a side shot and front shot please. What color are his earlobes? His legs look slate colored from what I can see in the photo.

    Hi
    unfortunately he belongs to a friend I won't see for a couple of weeks so can't get more photos atm.
    He has slate coloured legs. Not sure on his ears.
    any info appreciated from this info!
