Do you have any information that would help identify it? Where did it come from? Is it suppose to be a standard, bantam or meat bird? What kind of comb? Does it have any feathers on it's feet or legs?

Just from coloring I'd guess a Buff Orpington, possibly a Buff Minorca. Need a better body shot.

Still too young to tell the sex, though.

I bought it from a local feed store. Its a standard bird they said it was a high laying bird. No feathers on legs or feet

Buff Orpington is a popular bird. So that is the most likely. Post some more photos in 4 weeks if it doesn't look right.
