    Mixed breed rooster. Rhodebars are pretty rare in the US still and I'm pretty sure the OP would know if he were one. The color is pretty easy to get crossing a barred rock rooster and a red hen.

    I didnt really think about mixed breed rhodebar was the first thing that came into my mind. They really arent as rare as people think as I know multiple breeders, one of which live 15 mins from me.They are just a newer breed
