I just bought my rooster from a person near me. She said he is a barred rock, but he has more black than my barred rock hen I bought from cackle hatchery. The lady whom I bought him from also bought her chickens from Cackle Hatchery. But she order barred and black sex links as straight runs to compare them. She said he might be sex link but thinks he is Barred Rock. I looked at a black sex link roosters and they look like my barred rock rooster. **NOTE** I know his hackle feathers are puffy, thats because he has on a no crow collar.
