    I / my daughter entered a couple chickens into a local county fair poultry show. They were both BLRWs. The pullet took 3rd in her division, and a cockerel took second in his. The winners of both divisions and Grand Champion Standard Cockerel and Pullet were next to them. The rooster is pictured below. Because they were listed as American Class, Other, I did not know the breed.

    What is he?

    The Breed is a New Hampshire.



    Quote: When referring to a size of poultry there are Large Fowl and there are Bantam, the bird posted is a Large Fowl not "Standard".
