    I don't know what 'broilers' look like in India, but they don't look like it to me. Here they are fat and can't stand on their own.

    It looks more leghorn than broiler... but by America standards he doesn't look like either type of chicken

    Not a leghorn, because roosters are a lot more colourful than that
    I'm not sure about Broilers, as I've never heard of the breed:idunno

    These are definitely leghorns, if production quality. The only thing they have in common with boilers is their color.
