    I got him when he was a chick and I raised and now he's a really big boy. His name is T-Rex and I want to enter him in the state fair. Can anyone identify the breed?[​IMG]

    He's a mixed breed. He looks like a second generation (or more) sex link. So, basically a cross of red and white chickens bred to lay a ton of eggs.

    I'm not sure you can show mixed breeds in your fair, you might want to investigate that.

    I'm in agreement. Looks to be a crossbred and crossbreds usually can't be shown. Except maybe at like a county fair. But do check into it.
