    Although we thought we were purchasing all hens, we ended up with two roosters (a noob mistake on my part, but we told the owner we only wanted hens, so he should have been honest especially since they are old enough to be sexed, and he now won't reply back to me about trading them out for hens).

    So... I'd like to find out if anyone has an ideas as to what mix this rooster is? I was told he was around 4 - 5 months old. I want to offer him free to a good home, but I'd like to be able to give someone an idea of what he could be before I do so.

    Any ideas?

    The guy had all kinds.... I wasn't really concerned with breed when I went there, I just wanted hens to have as pets and for eggs. Thanks for the info... if I find someone to take him and the RIR then I can at least tell them he's maybe an easter egger cross :)

    I would just advertise him as a blue cockeral. It's such an "in" color right now, I doubt you'll have problems getting rid of him, even with the red leakage and unknown parentage.

    I agree, looks like an EE mutt. He is very pretty with the red on him. :)

    Thanks everyone for replying, knowing at least one breed he's mixed with will help when I post him on craigslist this weekend :)
