    [​IMG]Thought it was mille fleur, but no feathered feet and a bit too large?

    [​IMG] Looks like a leghorn cross of some sort. Perhaps a mille fleur/red leghorn cross. He is a beautiful bird.

    Thank you for the response, he is beautiful, unfortunately his temperament is not as nice as his appearance :)

    I sort of figured he had a 'bad' attitude because of the look and posturing in the picture. Don't let him get away with any BS. You are bigger than him and human aggression can be dangerous especially if children are involved.

    Yes, and that's the reason we got the chickens in the first place, my daughter is obsessed with animals. He is probably going to have to move on soon...luckily 3 of the 4 we got are friendly girls that are laying 4-5 eggs per week each.

    I was hoping that you had some hens like him - was going to try to convince you to hatch some eggs. Yep, I am an enabler. [​IMG]
