    What all breeds with white legs do you have, that will help narrow it down alittle. It looks like he might have leghorn or maybe even the single combed white birds that some hatcheries sell as RIW's. Do you have any sexlinks?

    I do have a bunch of white black splashed little leghorn bred hens and I have some sexlink bred hens ? but no completely solid white hens just white ones with black splashes and no buff hens in my mixed breed flock.

    This fella is about 8 pounds and is fully mature too.

    What about your roosters? I am going to say he is either out of a leghorn hen or a sexlink hen depending on the color of sexlinks because he is mostly white.

    I wouldn't consider him buff, but more of a red pyle type coloring..or white with red leakage. That would typically come from red sexlinks.

    Quote:That's what I was thinking too, that he looked like a washed-out red pyle. He is pretty though!
