    I am gonna say New Hampshire. But it could be a cross of some type. I have a Gold Campine/Buff Orpington cross that looks a lot like him.

    To me it looks like it's a Buff Orp. cross.

    The comb doesn't look Orpington. It looks like it has small ridges on the bottom.

    But he is a beautiful bird none the less!

    What color as his shanks/feet?

    i got them earlier in the year from black creek poultry, a local breeder in collinsville, al.
    they were supposed to be buff orpingtons.
    i got some day old chicks, 2 week old chicks and 6 week old chicks.
    one turned out to be a light brahma and the rest are all like these.
    the price was right and i got to pick them up at a meeting place so
    i did not get to see what he had. also no shipping which was a plus.
    but i did get one hen that looks like a buff so all is not lost.
    i figured BO/RIR cross is what they are.

    I agree that they are New Hampshires. Too dark for Buff Orpington and too light for Rhode Island Red.
