    Hi all,
    Have a roo who is just over 2 months old, and was looking to figure out his breed. Thanks! [​IMG]

    He looks too dark to be a Welsummer, No leg feathering so I doubt a Maran, I also doubt he could be a RIR...

    Hmm I am guessing he's a feedstore bird but I just can't think of too many Black breasted red type roosters other than that... Doesn't have lacing to be a Barnevelder, Could be a Partridge Plymouth, god there's just so much he could be! XD

    Thank you! Here's a closer look, hoping it may help a bit more.
    We did get our chicks from a local feedstore, the other 9 are all hens. We got 5 breeds, 2 chicks/breed. Just not sure which hen would be his "twin"![​IMG]

    Do you have any pictures of the hens you suspect are his twin?

    His earlobes look like they are starting to go white, so he could be a Dark Brown Leghorn.

    I am not 100% sure on breeds, as my husband was the one who purchased them. Here are all of the other birds- tried to get pictures best I could![​IMG]

    The two in the first pic at Welsummer or Brown Leghorn pullets. The other two in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th pic are Easter Egger pullets.
