I was given some chicks back in the summer that were basically throw in's from MM to keep a guy's replacement chicks warm. All turned out to be roos, and only one has survived disease and fox attacks. He's single combed with yellow feet, basically white, but has some red on him with tiny flecks of black in the tail, and faint barring on the hackles (neck). Could this guy be some kind of sex-link layer roo? I was told he was a broiler, but he's not near meaty enough to qualify.

Sorry, I don't have a photo of him...my daughter's camera is buried in the girl-cave.

I have heard people call something like that a California White I do believe! I don't know if MM has those though. It is some type of leghorn cross.

I found a photo of a red sex link on Feather Site that is a RIR x Delaware that looks very much like him. I'm thinking that could account for the barring, but I dunno...I'll look up California Whites...

Nope, he's not a Ca White.

I'm betting he is a red sex linked roo. I had some of those as packing peanuts a couple years back from MM. The hackle is creamy yellow with barring and red flecks of color. I don't have any pics though. We butchered them as fryers. They definitely aren't as meaty at the meat type birds.
