Anyone know what this guy is? I tried looking him up in my poultry book, but, no luck.
BR cross, I think. Looks like he's got some rusty feathers on his breast and wings?
Could be a black Sex link roo which would be a BR cross.
Yes, there is more rust/brown than the picture shows.
Thanks, I'm off to look at sex-link roos.........
I agree, black sexlink rooster, which is a RIR/BR cross.
I guess since hatcheries usually cull the sex-link roos at birth, I'm not surprised I've never seen an adult roo!
I am looking in my chicken book and i see that he looks like a barred plymouth rock so if you seach google and click on images, you might see a barred plymouth rock and it might look like yours.
Looks like our Chester! He is a black sex link too! Best hawk fighter I have ever seen!
Did he really fight a hawk?
Saw it with my own eyes! I thought he was tussling with one of the young roos, but then these 5 foot wings opened up, and I realized it was a hawk!! I sicked the dogs out on them, and my SO were right behind them! Fortunately the two young roos had already hopped into the fray, and with the dogs charging towards them, the hawk decided to retreat! Chester appeared unharmed, but did limp for a day or two, but mostly it was all the poor hens stuffed into the wood pile, under pallets, and into PVC pipes that we had to find and get unstuck! Poor things!
But that is what Roosters do, I have seen Chester charge at several hawks, while alerting the world! I would never consider free ranging a flock without a couple good roosters around!
