He was given to me a few years ago and was told he is a black astralorp... he looks like one but has white lacing on the neck/saddle feathers? what is he?

He may have one Australorp parent but he's not pure. Better pic would help but I'm thinking he's a nice mixed breed roo.

He's beautiful.  Guessing a barnyard cross of some sort.
