Is it a Broad breasted Bronze or a heritage Bronze?

    We just picked up this guy for my son's 4H project. He told us it is a Broad breasted Bronze about 3.5 months old. What do you all think? We only had to drive 5 hours from home to get him.... OK, we were already 4 hours across the state on a little "vaca" so just another hour. What's an entire day in the car when its picking up poultry for your "kids", right???? lol We also picked up 8 BCMs! Tomorrow it'll be BR eggs and 6 Polish... Yes, we centered our mini summer vacation around poultry. Does that make us efficient or crazy?

    Depends on how big the dog crate is [​IMG] You say you have a bunch of bourbon reds already. If hes a standard bronze, he should be about the same size as the BR, maybe a little bigger. If he's broad-breasted, he should be roughly 50% larger. Its hard to tell in the photo because pictures distort sizes, but the feet and legs don't look heavy enough to be broad-breasted.
