    He was a free rare bonus when we ordered our hens. I have my guess, but I am new to raising chickens so I am not too confident in my guessing. My guess is a Golden Penciled Hamburg.

    He is a Sicilian Buttercup, which is a rather rare and unique breed. He does look similar to a Golden Peniciled Hamburg, but his comb (a buttercup comb) is a clear sign of a Buttercup. A Hamburg would have a rose comb.

    I looked up pictures of a Sicilian Buttercup. It looks just like him. Thanks everyone.

    BantamLover21 is probably right. He looks like a Sicilian Buttercup to me.
