    I rescued this guy last year and he was 1 in March. I figured it would be nice to know what he is since he is so gorgeous. I was told he was a RIR but I have never personally seen one with feathered legs so I am not sure if that is correct. Any suggestions?

    He might be part RIR he has feathers on his feet!! RIRs do not have leg feathers! Might have Cochin in him or another leg feathered breed.

    Ok, thanks. I know with all the different breeds out there it is hard to know what he could be. He isn't the friendliest but he is a good dad for meat chicks and he is so handsome I just had to keep him.

    Are PRs or Brahmas fast growing? Because when I got him at 5mos he was already quite big and he just continued to grow into the giant he is today.
