Can you tell me what you think he is? I will always wish I never had to cut his wings. He just jumps like you have no idea!

Thanks

the white leghorn is one of the top laying breeds around, so i presume the same characteristic is found in the coloured birds.

He is a large buff leghorn. I had a trio of bantams I bought a couple of years ago, they are a fairly rare colour og leghorn I believe.

His wing feathers will be replaced eventually - at the next moult so you may have to wait a while. :) Are you putting in place other arrangements to keep him in the chookyard? :D

You cut only one wing normally.

As for growing back, yes, all birds moult and replace all their feathers at some stage over a year.
