Can someone identify his breed? Thanks!
You have a Barred Rock rooster.
Thank you! He was given to me and i had no idea what he was. I am new to raising chickens and got my hens as little chicks from TSC back in March.
Sorry to disagree with all of you, but he's absolutely not a pure Barred Rock. He's either 1/2 BR or a standard Black Sex Link rooster. Hackles are way too silver.
See my rooster here? He's 1/2 Delaware and 1/2 BR-note the very silver hackles.
THIS is what you want to see in a pure BR--see the evenly barred hackles, no silver overload?
I agree with this. Not purebred.
OK, sorry! I wasn't sure because of the angle. Thank you for correcting me!
X3 on Barred Rock mixed breed rooster.
Thanks everyone! He will be a great addition to my flock.
I gave some chicks to a friend, one who they said was a Barred Rock rooster. Hoping they were right since my rooster had died shortly before, I went and took a look.
He looked very much like the OP's rooster. He was a cross between my BR hen and Birchen Marans.
Many time folks don't know breeds. This same friend thought my Dominique hens were Barred Rocks.
Which is why I love BYC. You learn somethings if you stick around.
