    my wife and i were doing a little shopping in the heart of lexington ky today, when i heard a rooster crow; a nice deep hoarse crow. anyway i looked in to the backyard of a house that backed up to the store we were at, and there was a rooster that was very nicely barred in a very evenly orange color. i have seen crele i believe it is called, but have never seen one as evenly orange barred. his flock of appeared to be black sex link and some dirty white hens of very much the same size and shape. the rooster was also a standard size but not overly big.

    any ideas as to his genetic makeup?

    Sounds like a Crele.

    This sounds like what you are talking about, I hatched a roo just like this one from a Barred Rock roo on a RIR hen but if you try to remake it the results will vary becuase its just a matter of how much red leaks through so some of them may look just like a barred rock. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=231565

    And
    if you look here at catdaddyfro's avatar, he has a similar colored roo pictured there but I belive he said it wasnt his bird.

    And heres an older pic of one of my Lemon Cuckoo Orp project cockerels so you can see what barring looks like on a buff bird.

    And at the bottom of this page you can see a pic Tim Adkerson's Barred Rhode Island Red roo ( Though these are more specialized than just a simple accidental crossing like the one in the first link I posted) Tim has put a lot more work into these to get the deep red columbian color back and still keep the barring.

    I have not given up completely on barring on red. I am working on a barred red bird that is dark brown restricted and birchen. I think the nature of the birchen gene will help improve the barring. It will be one of my Missouri top knot varieties. I will post a picture of a male I have produced-later today. He is heterozygous or carries only one barring gene.

    I would need a picture of the male to take a guess at the genetics.

    Nice looking lemon cuckoo. I am surprised you can see the barring at all on the bird.

    I added the picture - the barring is really bad but I should be able to improve the barring in future generations.

    Red Barring on Columbian Restricted birds its possible, would be nice to hear Tim latest update on such birds based on ER and DB instead of e+ and Co


    these Males are the product of a Rhodebar improvement project(Good Quality Rhodebar Male mated to exceptionally good Type RIR Female)
    F1 Males..
