    Looks like a Partridge Plymouth Rock to me, or a mix of that breed/variety.

    He has white legs, which is the leg color for Sussex, but he would have bad plumage color for a Speckled Sussex, certainly. Could be a Sussex mix, of course. A Partridge Rock would have yellow legs but he could be a cross of the two since white skin is dominant.

    He looks like a mixed breed to me. Perhaps Speckled Sussex X Partridge Rock.
