    Looks to me to maybe be a Russian Orloff.

    We'll need a full body shot to properly identify the bird. Leg color, body shape, feathering on the legs, set of the tail, those are all things that make up a breed.

    The legs are pale yellow with pinkish bottom of feet. Tail is about a... hmmm say a 70 % Angle if i where to guess, the feet are not feathers either. She or he also has a flat back the curves into the tail. I would get a better picture but my camera is in need of repair... I'll see if i can get a better one soon though

    And now that i think abut it she or he does look like a sussex... She or he is still really young so I can't be sure though
