    The gentleman I purchased this chick from had Australorps, Barred Plymouth Rocks, New Hampshires Reds and Delawares all running around together. He purchased the four breeds from McMurray last year and hasn't let any of their progeny breed. Any guesses?

    sorry for the bad quality pic and rambling post, I worked 12hrs last night and haven't been to bed.

    What males did he have. 1 of each breed?

    You can rule out Australorp. Most matings with black result in black chicks. (except BBS and I'm sure there are a few more exceptions)

    It looks just like a Barred Rock/Buff Orpington cross chick that I hatched. If that's the case, it would be considered a sexlink.

    Quote:It appeared that he had a couple of each breed of roo, guy must of had 100 birds running around. It was like a poultry madhouse. He sells off most or all the chicks at a local auction.
