    Hello, This is Chester, Our resident roo. He is over one year old, and the sweetest gentleman you have ever met. We rescued him from a horrible livestock auction, and no one knows what he is.... any ideas? His legs are white, but they blush in certain areas unlike any of our other birds. He is the size of our RIR hens, and looks small compared to our Cochin and Wyandotte Roosters.

    That is a black Sexlink rooster. Handsome fella! The legs are white, which means they maybe used a Cuckoo Marans hen instead of a Barred Rock.

    Definitely a black sex link, but his spurs seem kinda small for over one year??? My guess is he is younger.
