    Hi all. Could someone please post a picture of a black sx-link rooster. I have never seen a full grown male and I heard they are pretty cool looking. And how are their personalities? I heard they could be pretty rotten. Thanks

    Here is Sir Roo. He is my Black sex link rooster.

    He does a wonderful job with the girls and knows I'm head roo. He does challenge that once in a while but, I believe that is what you would find with any breed.

    Most of the sex link roosters are very pretty.

    Being a hybrid, the appearances will vary. They are dark barred like that photo and generally will have some wisps of red in their plumage.

    As far as temperment, I don't find them offensive. Being hybrids, they will always grow faster than your purebreed cockrels. so, they do tend to jump to the lead of the flock pretty quickly (which could be seen as agressiveness to an untrained eye).

    Here's a photo of my Black Sex Link, Mr. Ed. He'll be 1 year old in early May.

    Here's my boy, Leif.

    He's attacked some of my family but has never even looked at me. I can do anything with him. [​IMG]
