    In April I got a order of chicks from Cackle Hatchery. I got Red Star pullets, Barred Rock pullets and Buff Orpington pullets. Out of them I got this guy. I think he may be a Red Star rooster, but I have no idea. Every picture I seen of them online looks different. So I am looking for suggestions from people that have been raising chickens longer then I have(i'm on my 3rd year) He is white, with reds specks all throughout him. Thanks

    Sorry I couldn't get better pictures, made the mistake of taking them after I put food out.

    Thanks I thought he was but wasn't sure. I wasn't thinking when I placed the order for my chicks and order all hens, no roos so I very lucky he slipped through.
