    I cannot figure out what breed(s) this roo is. But I am new at this, so it doesn't take too much to confuse me! Any ideas?

    Looks like maybe a 2nd generation red sex-link? Definitely something with white and red genes mixed together!

    That's an awfully floppy comb for a roo!

    Not sure what type he is, he is going to be pretty though, maybe someone else can help you more

    I would say he is a Leghorn / Rhode Island Red cross and at least a F2 (second generation) cross.

    I was thinking he was a 2nd gen Red Star. but it did occur to me that he may be a wht Leghorn/RIR mix. He is now 5 months old and his comb stands straight. He is a beauty! Unfortunately I have to rehome him and a beautiful RIR roo too. This one is quite the singer. And talks to me when I let him free in the yard. Comes to the door to see if I can come out to play. The funniest bird I have ever known!
    N&M - ck out these - I got the chickens to distract me from quilting 24/7! http://community.webshots.com/user/institchesquilts

    Thanks
    everyone, I appreciate your thoughts! Confirms my feelings. Not spot on but at least a ball park.[​IMG]
