    Looks like just an RIR to me, if his dad was barred, all chicks would have been barred.
    Even if the mom was barred, he would still be barred, but the females wouldnt (black sexlinks).

    this.

    That bird did not have a barred parent, unless I guess the sire was a black sex link........that could throw a solid bird.

    My BR/RIR looks a lot like his BR father, black and white barred, except he has splashes of shiny color randomly showing through. Nothing at all like your guy there.
