    I went to check on my hens right now and there was a rooster roosting with them. I need help on what breed he is? I will take a better pic in the morning if he is still there. [​IMG]

    You should ask your neighbors if their missing a chicken. Not sure on his breed, could be a mix.

    He looks like a mixed breed rooster to me; but a very pretty one.

    I would but I don't have any neighbors besides a rancher behind me that doesn't live there and it's a gated ranch I can't get in to even see if anyone is there.

    I would say that he is a mixed breed.

    He's a handsome mixed breed, likely a mix of mixes. The barring could have come from a Rock, or a Marans with those white legs. There was some Red bird in there also. Other common white shanked birds are Orpington and Sussex. Other than that, his ancestors were probably straight combed.

    We'll I found out where the rooster came from my friends pastor bought it to me since he heard me say I wanted one when mine ran away. I wasn't home so he just put it in the pen..
