    Hi Yodelhawk, [​IMG]

    I only know Buff Orpingtons. But I absolutely love the comb on that guy. So you have no clue?? How long have you had chickens? We have had ours 6 months.

    He could be an Ancona. Check out feathersite.com to see pictures of them and every other chicken know to man. [​IMG]

    This is just my opinion, but I'd say it's a young dutch.

    He looks too big to be a Dutch, IMO.

    Does he have the spots? I thought it was glare on shiney feathers. [​IMG]
    I have to agree with ancona now, I see the way the white is different too. You guys are good!
