    That looks like a molting Leghorn.

    Looks like a Malay to me. Those heads and that build are pretty distinctive.

    He is definitely an Asiatic breed. Unfortunately I am not good at telling them apart so I cannot say for sure it is a Malay. It certainly is not a Leghorn.

    You can post photos at "what breed or gender is this." OR post on the game bird thread. Looks like a malay to me but, I am no expert. Welcome to Backyard chickens

    He does look a bit like a Malay, or an Assel. Do you know if he is supposed to have more neck feathers? That will help figure it out.

    Your bird is definitely an Asian breed, probably a White Malay.
