    He looks like a brown leghorn rooster to me. Welsummers don't typically have white earlobes.

    I'd go with the Brown Leghorn as @mymilliefleur said. I was thinking Campine, but they are striped. He is beautiful!

    He's probably a Light Brown Leghorn.

    Brown Leghorn. The white earlobe are the giveaway. Looks like he's got a twin behind him.

    [​IMG] Actually, the birds in my avatar are Light Brown Dutch Bantams, not Leghorns. The two breeds are very similar, though.
