    Hello. I am Shelly from Gaffney, SC. My husband and I have 10 chickens - 9 hens and a rooster we got just yesterday. We have 6 RIRs, a Barred Rock, a Black Sexlink and another breed which right now is slipping my mind. We are unsure of the breed of the roo and are hoping someone can tell us what he is.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC!

    Wow, he sure is gorgeous!! I have no idea what breed he is. But it looks like Mountain Peeps has given you a good suggestion as to his breed and also the link to a place you can post pics here on BYC.

    Enjoy this pretty boy and welcome to our flock!

    Handsome rooster! He looks like an Easter Egger to me.

    Welcome to BYC, Shelly. Glad you decided join our flock. Your rooster is a mixed breed; perhaps an Easter Egger. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad to have you! I agree with drumstick diva, looks like he is at least part Easter Egger.
