    Looks like it might be a Speckled Sussex.

    RIR, chicks look like that, they loose the speckled bits in a few months, like mine did, all 8 of my RIR cockerels were like this

    This is true but that one does have kind of a lot of white even for a RIR and I think mine had lost the white before they got that big. I could be wrong though, it is hard to tell size in pictures.
