    He's a Penedesenca. Note the white earlobes, the funny looking single comb, and the slate legs.

    They looked white in most of the photos, but that one.



    I'd say hatchery quality or a cross, which isn't uncommon in hatcheries. My Pet Chicken gets stock from Meyer, who gets from Gabbard, who does have Penedesencas but there's no gaurantee at all of good or decent stock.
