What breed is this Rooster?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by WinstonPhoenix, Jul 27, 2014.

  1. Hi there, I adopted this rooster back in March and he's recently fertilized my Barred Rock's eggs (pictured) which are soon to hatch. I am however unsure as to his breed, could you all guide me in the right direction so I know what cross breed of chicks to expect?

    He does indeed look like a Delaware. That will make a nice cross for your Rock hens.
