    He was given to me as a 4 week old chick and is now about 5 months old. He comes from mixed parents. (Gotta love my 10 yr old in the background!)

    Mixed breed rooster. Possibly with some Easter Egger heritage. Very pretty!

    Doesn't look quite right for a Barred Rock. Maybe a Barred Rock or Cuckoo Marans mix?

    this makes him a classic Barnyard Mix. He's mixed enough no one or two breeds stand out.

    it's best to start your own thread with each person's bird, otherwise it gets confusing what bird folks are replying about.

    That said, this is a mixed breed rooster that had one barred parent.

    He seems to have gotten some good genes. I think he's just gorgeous!
