    That's the closest I could get to this young rooster....sorry. Any ideas on breed?

    I believe this is a brown leghorn rooster.

    The top rooster is an Easter Egger, looks almost identical to one I used to have

    The Leghorn is indeed a Leghorn

    The pullet looks to be a mutt of some sort, possibly an EE.

    Easter Egger

    Brown Leghorn

    And looks like a hen from crossing Buff with an Extended Black breed ( I hatched Black Sexlink hens that looked like that from a BO roo on BR hens.)

    Thanks everyone, that was very helpful. Cowgirl, I do see the similarities.
