    This is one of our Roos, Maverick. He is just over a year old. I traded a Buff Orpington Roo for him so as to break up genetic lines. I know his mom was a Red Sussex according to the lady I got him from but no clue what his dad was. Any ideas?[​IMG]

    It's nearly impossible to guess what the cross is. It could be anything, really. Sorry!

    It's most likely, given his silver coloring, that the father was either Light Sussex or Columbian Rock.
