    Anyone have any idea what breed and gender this might be? It's mostly white with light brown markings all over. I'm thinking mutt of something white and brown, possibly male or female...[​IMG]

    While it really is way too soon to venture a guess, I'll give it a go at ROO.

    Looks like a Red Sex Link cockerel. Those will be mostly white with red in the wing area. Did you get it at a feed store?

    Looks like a cockerel to me, based off the red wattles and comb. I don't think that it is a Red Sex-Link, as the males usually have more white and only develop red on the wings and neck later. It's possible that this is a Red Sex-Link pullet that is maturing fast, but I doubt it. It is probably just a mixed breed cockerel.

    I think you're right, definitely male or female. [​IMG]

    Yeah, that's why I asked where the OP got this one. It wasn't exactly like a RSL cockerel, but close. Could just be a mix like you said.

    Red Sex-link or other mix. Either way, it is a cockerel.

    this was a local country store egg, they get eggs from the local farms in the area, I noticed the eggs were fertile so I thought, "what the heck lets try to hatch them" out of 6, 2 hatched, four would have hatched if I hadn't dropped 2 of them.


    so, this guy was a mystery from the start.
