    I figured he was a Roo, due to the fact thats a large comb hes got going on.

    Many breeds come in this duckwing coloring. It could be a leghorn, welsummer, rock, ect. It needs to be a bit older and leg color can help narrow down the breeds.

    My first thought was a Welsummer cockerel when I saw him.

    They make so many that are similar to each other, its hard to tell. Ill keep an eye out & repost pixs in a week or 2.

    It will probably be either a welsummer or a leghorn. I lean towards a leghorn lol.
