    Looks just like a BR with slate/pinkish legs.

    There is green and purple irredecene in the black barring.

    I have a roo like this.

    Depends on who the roo and who the hen is as far as breeds. I am 99% sure that if you crossed a blue roo on barred hens it will be a sexlink because the barred hen has sexlinked barring. If I am correct you will get barred males and solid females. They would be either blue or black.
    If you crossed a barred roo on blue hens you will get all barred offspring, 50/50 blue/black.

    That is interesting monkeypoo. I don't ever plan on that cross, but the genetics are fascinating. Thanks for the pictureroo-red.

    Got a better pic of my roo.
    This is what you get with a BR roo over a BA hen.
