    I have 1 rooster left from a flock of 50 that had 18 different breeds so figuring out who was who was sometimes tricky.

    He looks like a partridge rock rooster.

    Do you have other partridge rock roosters to compare? I have a rooster that looks nearly identical to yours, that is 1/2 black giant and 1/2 rhode island red. Your rooster looks too large to be a rock.

    My bet is that he is a Barnevelder (partridge, non-standard variety).
