    We live in a residential neighborhood and had 2 roosters of some unknown (to us) breed. They took up housekeeping in the bush outside our bedroom window and one was LOUD and would sound off any time after midnight. The other has a squeaky little voice. We got them a girlfriend to see if it would shut them up. The smaller one nailed the cute little pullet as soon as she hit the ground in a dead run across the street, so that was HIS girl. The larger, loud one we took where we bought the RIR pullet with a beard and left him. When the guy released the rooster, his rooster, a big magnificent bird, jumped mine and the little guy beat the crap out of his rooster. Now he has his pick of the girls. Anyhow, he is russet in the middle with blue black hackles and tail feathers. He has a curly black full beard that sticks out over a half-inch each side of his head. Anyone have a clue?

    Just a guess, with the descrition given of the beard and red leakage, it sounds like an Easter Egger.
