Any ideas in what breed he is? He has some green feathers in his tail area...
I have no clue but he is absolutely stunning!
Welcome to the Forum! Some green in the tail? How old? What does he weigh you think? How many points on his comb? Sorry for all the questions, do you have a more close up picture(s) of head and feet?
Yes handsome boy, What other chickens do you have?
Thanks for the welcoming!! I’ll attach some more pictures... he is the o lay rooster I have, he is about 8months old. We have five buff Orpington hens unrelated to him that we bought from RK, hens are about 5 months old. They haven’t started laying yet.
Here’s a pictures with green metallic look to his tail feathers
The close up of his feathers are amazing. I hope it's your camera that's making his legs look so red.
That beetle green you see in the tail is pretty much normal in many black feathers.
His legs are pinkish looking today, is that normal, it’s cold and rainy out today. I’ll have to look at older pictures and see
It might be the weather. And your camera could be making it look way more pink/red than he really is.
This was him when he was younger
Stunning even though he didn't have his full plumage yet.
I'm hoping he's just coming across as being a darker pink than he really is. You'd notice if something was off.
Thanks for the additional pics. As Robin said, I think the green is iridescence. He looks healthy, he looks fairly heavy. If not more than six, seven pounds, I'm guessing Rock/Lakenvelder cross. Second guess, Silver Hamburg/Lakenvelder. Or I could be wrong about the weight and he's a broiler cross with one of the above. Does he walk like John Wayne?
He is somewhat more substantial now. Slow moving well tempered?
So, we joke about 2020 being the weirdest year for hatcheries. Your Roo came from RK, or somewhere else?
She said a mixed Ebay hatch.
He is on the heavier side. I’m not sure if he walks like John Wayne lol I’ll see if I can get a video of him soon.
Rooster came from eBay, mixed batch we had two chickens hatch from the eBay eggs, this Roo and a furry footed one but unfortunately raccoon got him And we had to reinforce our coops. We live on ten acres and unfortunately have raccoons and coyotes.
My bad, the pullets came from RK. Memory, a terrible thing to lose...
He is slow moving and well tempered. Kinda does this side shuffle thing with his feet when we walk up on the coop around his ladies but he hasn’t been mean. Knock on wood
The side shuffle is a territorial behavior. As long as he's friendly!
