    Likely a Barred Rock. Often Black Sex Link roos will have a tiny bit of red or gold leakage, and a slightly different body. . . But of course that comb there is pretty floppy. I'd wait til he grows up more.

    I know you cant see his legs in this pic but they are not yellow, more of a light grey color but not as light as my buff orpingtons.

    That sure is a big floppy comb. ??? maybe a Cuckoo Maran??? Do you ask BR or BSL because you got them from a hatchery? or you bought/gave to as?? A better pic will be nice. [​IMG]

    Dont know for sure of the breed since he was brought home by my daughter from school. You know science class project and they did not know what breed they were. She got two chicks and the other on was a bantam RIR. Just not sure about the roo and he just does not fit any one breed exact as I can tell anyway
