I am sure he is a road island red
No. Whatever else he is, he's not Wheaten (the colour of RIR chickens.) He has a black breast, indicating partridge or duckwing ancestry. Columbian wheatens have red breasts (as you can see in the very bad picture of my deceased rooster, Chester.) They also have yellow legs, as oldhenlikesdogs pointed out.

@JedJackson or @Gray Farms might have answers. I have no idea what that chicken is.
