    What breed is my rooster? I got him as a hatching egg and wasn't told what breed he was. I was thinking that he was maybe a North Holland Blue, a Dominique or a Cuckoo Maran. If anyone has any idea please let me know, I would really appreciate it. A picture of him is below. Thanks [​IMG]

    Maybe a Black sex link cockerel?

    Looks like a black sexlink cockerel to me. He's got yellow skin, so that rules out both North Holland and Marans. Dominiques have rose combs. Your boy's barring is too dark for a Barred Rock male, and he's got that golden red on his wings.

    He looks like a black sexlink cockerel to me too. He could also be a hatchery quality Barred Rock rooster.

    He's probably a Black Sex-Link cockerel.

    Mixed breed with some barred Rock in the ancestry.
