Barred And ....?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello all. So we received this young man recently, and it is a guess that he is around 4 months old? In regards to him living up to the task of a "good" rooster, well, he is certainly giving it the old college try. :weeeWe were told he is likely a cross between a Barred Rock and a Rhode Island Red, but being a newbie to the breeds and looking to learn more regarding their temperaments, I would love others input. Thank you!

 

...not sure but I think he is giving attitude in this picture.

That would be a black sex link male and, yes, that could be the result of a RIR cock over a barred rock hen -- that particular crossing is a very common one used to get black sex links. 

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Quite likely something Red mixed with the barred. He'll probably get more red/gold color in the hackles and saddle feathers  as he matures.
