I don't know enough to give any answers with any certainty, but he looks like a Blue(Splash) Copper Marans to me.
Once again, don't know anything much, but as far as looks go, he is one stunning cockerel! I love his coloring. If I lived closer I'd take him in a heartbeat. Really beautiful!
Sorry about your hatch. BCMs are so hard to hatch. One user said theirs hatched two days later than any of the other eggs that they set at the same time. Cute chicks, though. Congrats on them!
Thanks for your comments! He is quite a sweetie, too, and though I don't really have the space for him, I can't see getting rid of him unless I find someone who really wants him. :) He takes such good care of his hens.
@robgray cute chicks!! sorry about the losses. you all are going to get me sucked into BCMs. I ended up with my sweet cockerel by chance and now find myself scheming ways to get more!
