    Predominantly red/russet & white but does have a few flecks of black in his tail and 1 black tail feather which did not show up in the photo. I got him when he was about 3 weeks old. He is now a big guy and weighs approx 7 1/2 lbs.

    X2, He does look a lot like a red sex link rooster, so maybe a second or third generation cross of those and/or cross between breeds that are used for those? RIR/production red, Delaware/White Rocks etc

    My thanks to everyone for their input. I have always been curious as to what his heritage might be.
