Breed on this cute little roo?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

 

Hey this is my little boy Ollie, he is on the tiny side but so cute! Breed type thoughts? Saved him from feed store from becoming food, but is he a regular roo or a meat bird?

Is he a bantam? He looks like a sex link rooster.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Not sure to be honest. I just got him from the feed store and he had been there so long that they forgot what he was. My daughter felt bad for him. So a regular roo then, sex links are not solely meat birds correct?

He does look like a stubby red sex link cockerel. No, they definitely are not solely meat birds. The females are hybrid egg laying machines.
