    Quote:He looks like a Black Sexlink rooster. He's darker barred, with some red leakage and a couple solid colored tail feathers. [​IMG]

    Looks like a Sex Link to me. I had one once. . . Thought he was a Barred Rock, was told he was a Barred Rock, then I noticed the red in him, and found out later.

    Whatever he is, he's handsome all over!! I especially like the black tail feathers, I think they set off his barring.
