    Uuhh, define "real" [​IMG]

    He does look pure barred, but actually looks kinda more cuckoo pattern vs barred. What color are his legs, and do they have feathers?

    He's likely a hatchery barred rock rooster, if he has clean yellow legs.

    Is he heritage bred? No. Would he make a nice backyard rooster? Probably.

    Definitely a rooster. Probably a hatchery-quality BR.
