    Got these 6 as day old sex link chicks, but suspect a RIR Roo got in there? This pic was @ 2 weeks ago, the tail feathers are even longer and brighter [​IMG]

    the edge of insanity
    I thought that sex link roosters would be white? It does look like a roo, but I do not know the breed.

    I'd say your suspect bird is a roo.

    Marty, this is all new to me, I bought them out of the "Pullet" bin lol. I was assuming they were Black Star and Red Star. Since the red ones are Production Reds, and assumably at least one Roo, what are the Black Ones? Thanks
