    While SS get more white as they get older, this boy has pretty solid white "underpants" rather than the large splotching of the Speckled Sussex...

    My thought was possibly Exchequer Leghorn...but if his legs are pink/white, that won't be it either as he would need yellow legs.

    He probably fits an SS mostly....just has way more white underneath than most or is an older bird that has gained a lot more white.

    Or he may be a mottled something...or simply a mix.
