    It could be a Black Sexlink rooster. Did he come from a hatchery?

    He came from an individual that was breeding for better free range top shelf egg producers. I was told he's possibly a barred rock x Dominicor

    His barring doesn't look clean enough to be a Barred Rock X Dominique. He appears to be a Black Sex Link rooster.

    He had one barred Rock parent, the other's up for grabs. Not a Dominique or he wouldn't have that nice straight comb. Pretty much all you can say is his other parent had a straight comb, besides that it's difficult to narrow down.
