    He was given to us this past spring by my husbands coworker. He came with a group of rhode island red hens. Is he a mix breed and if so, what do you think he might be?

    Looks a lot like Euskal Oiloa. But they are really rare. Handsome man though!

    That's what I thought. I found it weird that he came with a well bred flock of females. I didn't know if there was something out there I had not seen before or what. lol thx for the reply

    I've never heard of those. I'm off to google it now though.
    He is a beauty! We've had plenty of roosters and he is the best we've had by far!

    Search online for breeders of Euskal Oiloa and email them with a pic of your boy and ask their opinion. He looks a lot like them except maybe the rust colored shoulder patch and chest coloration.
