    I have a "gamey" looking 16 week rooster (I think). He is from the heavy breeds straight run bin at Atwoods. We got three dark chicks to accompany our single chick hatched from a dozen auction show quality buff orpington eggs. He is very fast and flighty, dark legs with bottoms of his feet yellow. Any guesses as to what breed he is?

    Got it! Thought I posted it with the first post, but had to resize. He really shines in the sun. I will try to post a second image.

    This is him(black one) in the sunshine with what looks to be buff brahmas, the other two of three from Atwoods.

    Maybe a black Aseel or Aseel cross.

    Wow, I think you are correct! This may not end well if I have buffs and a game rooster! Thank you for helping me. He is beautiful, but I call him El Diablo! He has an intimidating look, but my husband likes him! He is fast moving and roosts as high as he can, compared to the buffs that I can reach down and pick up. They act like they are too heavy to reach their short roost! Ha!
