White Plymouth Rock.
mother o' chicks72 :
red earlobes and too stocky for leghorn so I would second the white rock
Proably a white rock. Its not a white leghorn for the same reasons fancyfowl4ever said.
Thank you guys for posting.
I know It is a white rock, But getting second opinions from people.
I bought this guy at a sale in october. My friend wanted to raise cornish crosses, so I got her this guy.
Well I knew he was young, but it would do well with the hens being only a few months older.
Well a month pass and this kid my age, Who knows FAR more then I do, he bred and showed for a few years, And I respect him and his knowledge but he told my friend that it wasnt a white rock and he should be stockier, and to leggy.
I believe the roo isnt leggy and that he is young and hasnt filled out, that is why he looks thin. but I went over to take a pic, and could tell a BIG difference in him comparison to when I bought him.
Im trying to show my neighbor that there is no need to find another and worry about the roo.
Quote:Since he showed he should take note that show quality birds are many times larger than that of non-show lines (as well as differences in leg length). The size isn't that big of a deal currently, as you mentioned he is a young bird and has a lot of filling out to do but still is too stocky for a Leghorn.
He's a handsome looking fellow! We already have a white rock pullet and I'm considering some dual-purpose for spring. I'm going to add one of these to my wish list.
