    This is Bucky my BR roo cross. What is the cross? The pics are a couple weeks old and he has some new feathers so I will post an updated pic of him tomorrow. Here are a couple old pics though from a couple weeks ago.

    I'd say a Buff Orp X Barred Rock cross sexlink, for some kind of sexlink anyway. Here are my 5 month old BO X BR cross roos.

    Is there such thing as a Silver Leghorn? If so, I would say BR X SL.

    He could be all Bared Rock. I know that he is showing a lot of White but that could just be the way it was bread..
    Now remember the first White Rocks where a sport of the Bared Rock... He also could be a Bared Rock / White Rock cross. I herd that some breeder of BR's to clean up the barring would cross a BR rooster with White Rock hens then cross some of the offspring back to the BR... Or even could be a Buff Rock Bared Rock Cross..

    The BR was the hen, I didn't notice the leg color when I posted, but I still think he is a sexlink cross, maybe with a yellow legged breed like RIR,NHR, or Buff Rock.

    IMO, after having many BR roo over whatever crosses hatched from my flock, I believe he is BR crossed with just about anything, Buff Orp, RIR, etc. It's really impossible to say, but I'm positive about the BR part.
