Not sure what kind this little guy is, I'm hoping you all might.

    I'm trying to figure out what breed this little roo is. He's one of the poor sweet peanuts that came with my ducks and while I've found a home for all unexpected 7 of them I'm considering keeping one so my flock would have a roo. However I'd like to know what breed he is before I make the final decision.

    It looks like a Rhode Island Red.

    Thanks for the info guys. I think we're going to keep Peanut and only give away his brothers. He's such a cute little guy, and I think it will be good to have a Roo in my flock considering where we live.

    You can't tell that Peanut is a rooster unless they have been vent sexed, which isn't 100% accurate anyway. A beginner should NEVER vent sex a chick, as they could easily be hurt or killed.

    In reading the OP's first post, 8 of these "packing peanut" chicks were included in a shipment of ducklings from a hatchery. In that case they are likely all males.

    He is either a RIR, production red, or possibly New Hampshire.
