    Pics are not clear enough. Where did you get him? I'd guess he might have some EE and perhaps some PBR in him, or perhaps EE x BSL.

    I got him with my whole flock from a guy that did a 4-H hatching project. The guy does it every spring and then sells the whole flock in the fall. It's a total mixed group. A couple Bantys a few RIR some EE. This rooster is just HUGE for his age. The whole flock is within a week or so in age and my guess weee hatched in April 2016. There was another rooster that came with the flock that I re-homed. He looked more mature, longer tail feathers, actual spurs instead of nubs like this rooster, but this guy is much much bigger. I'm just kinda curious.

    He looks like a mix to me, enough no specific breed stands out. That color is what I've gotten mixing black birds with silver based birds, so color really isn't going to help narrow things down, too many variables.

    I'm sure he is mixed. Was just wondering with what because of his size. He is a big boy. Lol
