    [​IMG][​IMG]I have this rooster I bought at atwoods when he was a chick and I'm not quite sure what he is as I'm new at this. I thought barred rock but not sure since he's getting white feathers. I would love some answers to this please. Thank you!

    My first guess would say he's a mix. He's really cute. Mixes make the best chickens

    I don't think he's a Black Sex Link (he certainly isn't your typical BSL). I think he's just a Barred Rock mixed breed.

    Barred Rock mix (which would include Black Sex-link).
