    Traded my 4 white rock pullets (don't care to have white chickens) for 2 barred rocks and 2 "BO's" that ended up being one BO and one Buff Rock [​IMG] Anyway, they brought me 2 surprise roo's too [​IMG] because apparently they have too many roos. One is a barred OEGB which is beautiful, and this gorgeous guy, well I have no idea what he is, and figure he's probably and EE or a mix? He has black legs, is mostly black, with iridescent tail feathers and some lighter colored feathers around his neck. I really don't have a use for him as I have one full sized roo and now 3 bantam roos, but they just brought him with the girls, lol.

    Black sex link males are barred, so he's not that.

    He looks to be a mixed breed. It's possible to get a beardless EE, so he could be. My olive egger crosses have similar markings. (although mine have beards)
