    this rooster is a red sex link rooster. His counter part hens are red/gold with white tips and tails. They're marketed under several brand names--red stars, gold comets, cinnamon queens to name a few. If you breed this rooster to red sex link hens you'll still get nice layers, but you'll lose the sex linkage part of the cross.
