    I got this handsome fella from my friend. He's my first Rooster. Any ideas of what breed or mix of breeds he is?? He has a single comb, pinkish feet with a little gray shading on the front, plus a few greenish tail feathers and his beak is mostly gray/black.

    Looks like a black sex-link rooster to me.

    Aren't barred rock roos usually lighter-look white with black barring? I thought they had yellow legs too.

    I'm thinking a cuckoo marans..... single comb and white legs.... (although the markings are more like a barred rock but barred rocks don't usually have white legs)

    Just a guess though [​IMG]

    Something i forgot to mention about him.........if you look at the second pic please notice is back toes. Its like 2 toes out of 1 nub on both feet. Is that a spur or a 5th toe?? (Remember I'm new at this:)

    Quote:I'm no expert but his tail feathers look average when I compare him to pictures of roosters
