    A friend and I are swapping roosters. This is the one I will be receiving. Any idea what breed he is? Might be a hybrid or a nothing at all. Just looking for thoughts. He is the one on the right...reddish with white tail.

    Well, normally I'd say Red Sex Link, but he's got too much red for that.

    I'm assuming the person who bred it got it wrong and used a white male over a red female. The females of the red sex-links are supposed to be mostly red with white...and the males are supposed to be mostly white with some red! lol

    It does look like a sex link, but I don't know for sure.

    I am curious however about the other rooster in the center of the photo.
    Do you know what type of rooster he is? He looks ALOT like my Hoss.

    Could be an EE: Easter Egger.

    I can't clearly see his comb, but it looks like he has a beard. That and the legs make me think EE.

    It is an EE. Sending my nasty, aggressive Buff Orp roo to get "trained" (i.e. - a butt whoopping) from 8 other roosters.

    The red and white one does not look like an EE in my opinion. I think he is just a nice looking mutt.

    Quote:Wow, he looks so much like Hoss. I guess I will never know EXACTLY what breeds went into the making of Hoss, but I see some roosters that looks just like him often.

    Hoss is no EE though.
