What kind of rooster is he?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 






Anyone know what kind of rooster this is? I bought the entire flock from a lady and all she told me was that it was a "red roo". I was trying to decide whether to keep him or not but I'd like to know exactly what kind he actually is. A guy that works for us guessed RIR but this is his first time being around chickens. Lol. Is it a red sex link since she had 5 of those hens already? She tended to have a rooster for every breed of hen that she had. The pictures are kinda dark but he is actually red, not black like those pictures look. Just a darker red than the sex link hens that she had.

I'm going with classic Barnyard Mix :)

 

He's got some nice red behind him for the darker red color, but the body shape is all off for a Rhode Island. He also looks to have black mixed in with the red? Pics in better light would help, I can't tell if he's just a mix of black and red or partridge colored. He's not a sex link rooster, they're basically white with a little red on the wings.

I answered you on your other thread already, but as I said there, he's a mixed breed.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Haha. Thanks! Yea I didn't mean to post twice, I'm actually not sure how that happened! I'm going to try to get a better picture of him tomorrow in the sun so you can see his color, its a nice deep red. I just don't think I'm going to keep him if he's just a barnyard mix. He would be a great rooster for someone that free ranges because he's really protective of his girls. I just don't think I want any babies out of him! 😉
