    I have ABSOLUTELY no idea! That is one beautiful rooster with a magnificent tail. I have never seen one like that. What is his name, is he nice??? What is the black and white one beside him in the last pic?

    ETA Those are some serious spurs!

    I have a roo that looks very similar to yours and I don't know what breed he is either. I got him and three hens from a farmer whose son hatched some birds for a 4-H project and didn't want them anymore. Here is a pic of King Louie (my 4 year old daughter named all our birds) and the hens. They look like my ISA Brown hybrid hens, but only weigh about 4- 5 lbs. Any help identifying them would be great. BTW, they lay a medium large, pale brown egg. Thanks!

    King Louie looks like a Red Sex Link roo.

    MallyCat- I don't know what your roo is, there isnt enough whilte for me to think RSL. Of course, I am not an expert and may be wrong. He is gorgeous though, and I love his coloring!

    I think he's a red sex-link. He's beautiful!

    He looks like a Barama, but they are really small chickens. How big is he? Baramas are about 3-5 lbs.

    I'm not sure what a barama is. If you mean brahma, they're actually quite large. I think the standard roos are 8 pounds or more, though they do come in bantam form as well. This roo is definitely not a brahma. If you mean serama, they're teeny tiny - less than a pound, I think. He's definitely not a serama. If you mean something totally different, I've never heard of it before. [​IMG]

    So, are the hens that came with him RSLs as well?
