    I'd say Rhode Island White, don't believe they're supposed to have the brassy shoulders.. But may be due to a outcross with a red bird or something.

    Rhode Island Whites are extremely rare. His leg color, tail length, and general plumage color are wrong for a RIW. I'm just gonna call him a pretty mutt. [​IMG]

    Quote:White birds are strictly white. [​IMG] He has yellow on his shoulders. Also, Wyandottes have yellow legs (his are white) and small, short tails. Even hatchery Wyandottes have long tails, but they're very upright and thin looking.

    Total guess here, but with that tail, wouldn't he be part Yokahama, Phoenix, or some other long tailed breed? Mixed with a rose combed breed...

    With his gold shoulders, rose comb, and white legs, he's a mutt, that I know. Handsome guy though! [​IMG]

    He looks real similar to these: http://www.cacklehatchery.com/yokohama.htm#red

    If
    you crossed this with another breed(s) that would give him a rose comb, shorten most of his feathers, and change the red on the shoulders to gold... This is my best guess! [​IMG]
