    I thought that i had some really bad barred rock roosters but after looking at feathersite, i think they are black sex-link roos. Any one want to try?

    This is my red something? He is 4 months and has this white tuff on his back side...

    Here is what i think may be a black sex-link roo. otherwise barring gone bad.

    I am trying to find mates for all my backyard flock to put into separate runs and i didnt think i had any roos for my black sex-links. The rest will be going to the dinner table.
    Thanks all

    Yes, that is a BSL rooster, Melissa. The red one just looks like his underfluff is showing. Could be a Production Red, but can't tell for sure.

    great, so i guess its not as bad as i thought...i didnt get as many BR's as i would have like since i think 90% of them are roos and BSL but that is ok. I am happy they are finally identifiable!
