He's three months old is all the info I got with him. He was an ordered chick but my mom (who got him for me from her boss) didn't think to ask his breed. He was going to be butchered because he was pooping on a saddle constantly. LOL.

I named him Wilber and just am curious what breed ya'll think he is and how big he may get...because for 3 months id' say he's a pretty big boy. He's atleast heavy. I mean he's not HUUUGE but what im saying is i dont *think* he's a bantam.

Here is a pic of Ike, our Single Comb LIGHT Brown Leghorn at the same age.....




And at 1 1/2 years of age.....





I think your bird looks a bit like Ike, but may be a DARK SCBL.

Have you ever actually seen a Dark Brown Leghorn?
The bird pictured is a hatchery bred, juvenile Light Brown Leghorn. The adult bird posted by keljonma is rightly identifiedas a Light Brown Leghorn.
Here's a link to the Feathersite Leghorn page. Scroll down to the Dark Browns & I think you'll see the difference particularly in the hackle.
