    He was supposed to be a Columbian Rock, and I cant find anything with his coloring. He is sweet and about 7m old, the pic is him a couple months ago. Thanks Joy

    Light Brahma without leg feathering?? I really don't know, that is just a guess. [​IMG]

    Edit to add: Just noticed you said he's supposed to be a Columbian Rock. He does look kind of like one...possibly something else mixed in, or just hatchery quality?? Not sure.

    Maybe a columbian wyandotte. Not sure if the feathering around his neck is quite right. Here's a picture of one of our roos when he was younger [​IMG]
    He's grown quite a bit since this pic and his neck and back feathers have darkened significantly and looks quite a bit like your boy.

    Edited because I accidentally uploaded a pic of a hen...whoops!

    Not a wyandotte, he has a straight comb. He could just be a hatchery quality rock, or a rock mix maybe.

    I agree with maybe Columbian Rock cross. He seems to have a different color leaking through on his wings. Some hatcheries have cross breeds for egg and meat purposes. Mt. Healthy Hatcheries has
    Columbian Rock Cross Chickens
    Produced by mating a Rhode Island Red female with a Columbian male, this robust, dual-purpose bird is know for its ability to efficiently produce eggs even in the coldest of climates. An excellent layer of cream colored brown eggs with a calm good natured disposition, this cross is a great choice for the family flock. Females are basic white with the traditional Columbian pattern of black laced across the neck and black-trimmed wing tips and tails. Males have different shades of brown mixed throughout their feathering.​

    Thanks for the replies, I am pretty sure he was one I got from Dunlap, I have a hen thats supposed to be Columbian rock also. No complaints, just didnt look quite like what I had looked up. He is sweet so far and is watching his 14 girls(I do have an Amercauna roo possibly from Cloverleaf and a Copper Marans roo to hopefully bring down the ratio. )
    Thanks Joy
