Can someone tell me what type rooster this is. I've had him a while and don't know his breed.
Looks to be hatchery quality Delaware.
looks like a delleware cross as he is missing the dots around his neck
I agree, Delaware
Delaware mix because he doesn't have the spots on his neck.
could be delaware, especially if he came direct from hatchery. he does have spots on neck, just not much color on hackles for the "spots"(actually barring) to show. He has all the basic traits for delaware- white body with barred tail/neck, largish, yellow legs.
Can't tell you what he is not he's pretty
Thanks everyone... Reason asking bc I'm incubating some eggs and was curious as to what type of chicks I could possibly get ... I have 3 coo coo morains and 4 sex links and 1 naked neck. What do y'all think?
It's hard to say if he's mixed. However, if you assume that he's pure delaware, then you will get Sex-linked babies out of the Cuckoo hen (black females, barred males).
With the Sex-Link hens (you didn't say which color), you will get a mishmash of colors in the babies. Unpredictable stuff will happen because you are taking a hen that is already a mix, and adding her to a rooster that may be mixed.
With the Naked Neck, you didn't say what color the bird is, so we can't tell you what color the chicks may be.
