Can anyone help me figure out the breed & approximate age of this roo? He was given to me last week by someone who had too many roosters in his flock, but didn't tell me much about him. TIA!

Not a problem. I fixed it :)

As for the rooster. I would say at least a year old and I'm leaning towards a Rhode Island red, he's got a nice dark red color, his back is flat, good fountain tail, and the single comb.

Edited: My bad not pure bred, probubly a mix since it has pinkish legs with slight feathering. He is nice looking though, good find.

Thanks for your input! I suspected RIR, but wasn't sure. Thanks for the insight.

He is beautiful, though, isn't he? When my friend brought him over I was just in love! :)

I'm with the RIR group. The feathering on the legs can either mean he is a mix or he has feather stubs.
He is beautiful and really and you love him. That really is all that counts :)
