What breed is this chicken? Brown Leghorn?

We got a batch of chicks from tractor supply on Sept 10th. We got 6 - 3 Easter Eggers, 2 Barred Rock, and 1 that was supposed to be an ISA Brown. The single chick was bigger than the others and had some feathers when we got them, so I think it was about a week older than the others. As it has grown, I don’t think it is an ISA Brown. Right now I’m guessing it’s between 5-6 weeks. It is very skittish compared to the others. I’m just at a loss as to what it is. Please take a look at the pictures and see what you think. It’s also looking more like a rooster to me, but time will tell.

That’s a rooster breed I’m not to sure what that is.

It is a male. It is not a brown leghorn-wrong comb type. It looks like it may be another EE, or a partridge something?
Some leghorn varieties do come in rose comb, including the browns. But they are rare and this chicks looks too plump for a leghorn. Time will tell, but I'll stick with partridge Wyandotte for now.
