    I had a broody hen late last summer and my chickens lacked eggs back then so I got a few eggs from a guy down road from me who only has breeder/SQ chickens.

    What is this rooster?

    It definitely has some Rhode Island Red and I'm pretty sure about the Cornish, so I agree with lilliesanchicks
