    This guy was in the straight-run bin at Atwoods...which is kinda like TSC. He is around 14-15 weeks old now and his name is Russo. He is colored like the Black Australorp is but has some red in there. Could he be Black Australorp with a little red? Anybody care to guess what he may be? Thanks.

    Thanks so much for the reply. I believe that they get their chicks from Ideal. He is a young guy but he is a really good rooster. He spends most of his time making the hens eat, looking up and signaling at the sign of any large birds, etc. He also is very, very noisy but he don't bother me.
