    Got this guy? From a straight run with several pullets. My only guess is a brown leghorn?? But relatively new to this and mainly a dominque guy. Please help!! [​IMG][/IMG]

    Not a Brown Leghorn. I'm not sure what it is. Where (what store/hatchery) did you get it from?

    I got it at our feed store in town. It just came with the starter for the pullets I bought. He called them "mystery chickens" because you can get anything. I truly have no clue what it is besides ugly lol

    aw, I don't think he is ugly, he's just at an awkward stage.

    My guess would be a mixed breed cockerel. Confident it's male and not recognising any particular breed from those markings. Where did you get him?

    I am thinking barnvelder cockerel, but could be wrong.

    Must confess, Barnevelder did cross my mind but just doesn't look quite right to me.
