    Hey There,

    When I bought this guy at TSC in April they told me he was an Australorp. I'm looking at him now and I'm think he is not due to all the gold colors on his neck. What do you all think?

    Thanks,
    Beth

    Could he be a Black Sex Link?

    Black sex link roosters are barred.
    He could be a mix of Black Australorp and RIR, but that's just a guess.​

    Okay, I'm just not sure b/c the other two hens I bought with him were definately Aussies. But, all the pics I see of Aussie Roo's none seem to have this gold color on them but, I've only located a couple to compare.

    Not an Aussie. I think he's a mix.
