    I thought he was RIR, but he doesn't look like the picture.

    He is very pretty and a possible father to my 8 chicks. Just want to call them what they are. Thank you.

    not RIR, but he sure is pretty! He looks a lot like my Jimmy, who is (I think) an OEGB. I'm assuming yours is big though?

    He may be a leghorn cross because of the white lobes on the sides of his head. Maybe a Brown Leghorn.
