    I do believe you have a Red sex-link rooster.

    Greetings from Kansas, tallmans, and :welcome! Pleased you joined our flock. I am a poor judge of breeds so I'll leave that to the pros and just say that he sure is a handsome fellow! Best wishes! :)

    I thought maybe low quality (no rudeness intended) Swedish Flower was a possibility. But have very little experience identifying breeds especially with sex links.
