    Hi and welcome - without photos it is really not possible to ID your rooster based on that description as it *could* be a few different breeds. Hopefully you'll get the photos soon so we can see the bird and help you with your question.

    Brown Leghorn. If you breed him to dual purpose hens, the offspring will have increased egg production (as a rule).

    Dual purpose breeds= breeds used for both eggs and meat. Orpingtons, Rocks, Buckeyes, Domaniques and Welsummers are a few, but there are many more. You can look at the breed list on www.feathersite.com to see which breeds are considered egg producers, meat producers, dual purpose and ornamental :)
