Looks like either a bronze or red bronze to me
i Agree probably Bronze
Definitely not a bourbon red. They are reddish with white wings and tails.
Also not a standard bronze, the wing coverts (the patch in the middle of the wing) is too light, and there would be visible barring on the secondaries.
Red bronze usually have very dark wing coverts as well.
The light gold tinge to the wing coverts, the pattern on the secondaries, and the brown feathers with black trim on the back suggest golden Narragansett.
Thank you for your responses I was told he was bourbon red but did not look right from the pics I have seen
Well we getting some bourbon reds from cackle hatchery but of he is a bronze we will be having a yummy feast
The second picture is very interesting, It has black primaries. This means it is black-winged based. Also, the wing coverts and the secondaries are too "yellow" for a standard bronze. It may be a black-winged red-bronze, although the trim on the tail is very pale for that.
In any case, if you are eating anything that's not Bourbon Red, get out the knives!
