    Sorry, to me, he looks like a black sex link rooster. He is very dark for a pure BR and I see a few solid black feathers, which usually indicate a black sex link. Can't even see the leg color to tell you anymore. A better body shot would help.

I also was supposed to have gotten a cochin americana mix and it is actually a bantam porcelain d'uccle!!! oh and he is a a he not a she like he was supposed too. Sexing is one thing, but atleast they should get the breed right!!!

    This would be a better way of wording it [​IMG]
    Was the rooster sold to you as a Plymouth Barred Rock or a Cuckoo Maran.

    One could cross a Buff, Silver Penciled, Partridge, Columbian, Blue or Black Plymouth Rock Rooster over a Barred Hen and there offspring would still be a Plymouth Rock but
    they also would be a Black Sex-Link. [​IMG]
