    I bought this rooster from a nieghbor and he said that he was a cross between a RIR hen and the rooster is unknown. If you have seen a rooster like this before let me know. I think he may be half Welsummer or Maran, but I don't know that much about other breeds colors.

    I do think he is atleast half Maran, he has the Maran eyes, but something about his color makes him not look fullblooded.

    Until today I had not seen any pictures of a Maran. But after seeing those on another post in this section I think he is 1/4 Maran 1/4 something else and the other half RIR. I'm just guessing, I really don't know. I do like the looks of him and THANKS for the compliments. I think the dude I bought him from said that If I crossed him with RIR's the hens will come out black and the roo's will come out who knows what color. I keep him and give it a try. If ya'll see any pictures that look similar to him, let me know so If I sell any day old chicks out of him I will know what to tell folks.
