    I have this beautiful rooster we were given and I am certain he is mostly bared rock of some sort but he has such beautiful colors andy other bared rocks are mostly black and white...this on has some pretty streaks of brown here and there. What do you think from this picture? He is also such a good boy. So docile and we'll mannered. [​IMG]

    He looks like a black sexlink. They are usually a cross of Rhode Island Red rooster and Barred Rock hens. The resulting chicks can be sexed at hatch; females are mostly black with some gold, males are barred gold, red or yellow throughout.

    Ty...he is such a good boy....question he has mated with one of our white silkies that has blue skin....I'm curious as to what kind of hen or rooster that would result in?

    Yep, he's a mix. One parent was a barred Rock, the other parent was something Red, with a single comb and yellow skin. I had a rooster just like him as my flock leader for years. Hatched out some beautiful babies with the mixed coloring [​IMG]
