    I don't think he is a Sussex, he is too thin and boney and his markings aren't the same

    He may not be a stellar representation of the breed, but there's no other breed that fits that color, comb and leg color. He may be mixed with something, he may be young, he may be hungry--I don't know.

    No offense but compared to Fancy's Light Sussex yours doesn't look to good and that is why you may think he isn't a Light Sussex but as don has said everything fits.
    How old is he? He may have some more growing to do is all and then his will look spectacular[​IMG].
