    Looks like eastern wild or broad breasted bronze, but I am no expert.

    Broad breasted bronze, or rio grande. Pretty sure its a broad breasted bronze though!

    How old is this Tom? I'm going to disagree and say standard bronze.

    Then he's a standard Bronze. If he was broad breasted he'd be 50 pounds by now.

    He is a Narraganset.

    I believe you're correct! He looks a lot like my little hen but she's a mixed breed. I keep forgetting that she's not all bronze.
