    This is a big rooster. Apparently he's a pure bread heritage breed? I am thinking of selling him, as I don't want partial heritage chicks. He is 6 months old. Help me name his breed! [​IMG]

    He could also be a jubilee orpington (they look very similar) but the speckled sussex are much more common.

    OK thanks guys. I think I might have tracked down the heritage farm where he came from, so I will keep you posted to confirm your guess.

    She said he is one of hers. He is a Mottled Spangled Orpington with some jubilee colors leaking through.
