    Anyone know what kind of rooster this is? I bought the entire flock from a lady and all she told me was that it was a "red roo". I was trying to decide whether to keep him or not but I'd like to know exactly what kind he actually is. A guy that works for us guessed RIR but this is his first time being around chickens. Lol. Is it a red sex link since she had 5 of those hens already? She tended to have a rooster for every breed of hen that she had.

    Not a red sex link rooster - they are primarily white with some gold flecking. I would guess a barnyard mix. He's a strong, well built rooster.
