    I bought a rooster the other day, and do not know what breed he is. I have done research online but have yet to find out! Your help would be much appreciated! I do know that I have 6 RIR hens, and 2 black sex link hens, and 2 Banty hens! And how old do you think he is? The man said he was only half grown.

    Looks like a mix. Going by comb and wattles he is 7 months. But going by tail i would say 5-6 months.

    Thank you! I was leaning toward saying mix but was unsure!
    jbarret: He is gorgous! What do you mean by ee ? I am very new to having chickens and am trying to learn all I can.

    Ok. Thank you! The man that I got him from has RIR and what he said was yellow buffs and the black sex links.
