    Like my previous post of my other roo, This guy came from a trio of 'red-sex link pullets.' Well 2 of the 3 are roos. This is a pic of my second guy.[​IMG]

    Yes, his legs are yellow. He is a huge roo; not tall but very, very thick, similar build to my 3 Wyandotte hens. I was wondering if he was a buff Wyandotte myself but I am soooooo novice at this that I wanted some more opinions. I wasn't sure if his comb meant anything specific. He is a very mellow guy. Thanks for your feedback!! I'd love to know that I ended up with a (hopefully) pure-bred rooster. :)

    Thank you!! Do you think he's a mix or purebred?

    Agree with the above. He's actually a pretty nice looking rooster, for hatchery stock!

    He's a beauty, but I am not certain about his breed.

    Thank you Sourland! He is definitely the most mellow of my three.
