    What a cute little guy! Partridge Rock, Welsummer, or Brown Leghorn. If he gets white earlobes then leghorn for sure. That is a really big comb!

    Plus look at those thick legs. Roo. I think my Partridge Rocks got the partridge pattern when they were older; I remember wondering where it was....
