    If he is standard sized.... perhaps Speckled Sussex, his color and leg color are correct, but his body type is a bit off... maybe because he is young and will fill out more later.

    He is standard size and hes huge. I am almost scared to think of him getting any bigger. The lady that gave him to me had called him dolly because she thought he was a girl. We have renamed him rootie.

    Its not really major important to me what breed he is, hes beautiful to us and our first chicken so hes a keeper. Only reason I ask about his breed I couldn't find anything in pics that totally matched him. I don't really look for pure breeds because I'm not planning to show any and not planning to sell any. I just enjoy them and we love the fresh eggs. Extra eggs get shared with friends and senior citizens.
