    I thought I'd seen it all but I've never seen a rooster that looked like this. I think he looks awesome. Any guesses on what he is? I sent a msg to the person who posted the video but I thought I'd ask here too just in case they didn't know.

    He's either A) a splash laced red or B) a white laced red. The first is more likely, though he's awful bright. I doubt he's a washed out sex link as I see nearly perfect (though wide) lacing.

    As for the breed, I don't know. He's a bit odd looking and the comb isn't quite right.

    ETA: I watched the video a few more times and that lacing AND those legs!! The orange legs look so out of place on these 2 birds..

    He looks more like a Wyandotte mix than an EE to me. [​IMG]

    I dont think the rooster in the video is an EE I was just comparing the color to mine. Possibly could be red laced black with dominant white covering the black.. unless I'm just making up red laced black as a color...!
