This handsome fellow (Copper) turned up in a box of chicks that were supposed to be barred rock pullets. 🤨 he started out all black and gradually started showing some orange now he has the beautiful copper and deep crimson on his back and blues greens rooster tail feathers. Im hoping he stays as sweet as he is now. I really want to keep him as long as he doesn’t challenge my #1 dominate Cochin rooster. I’d like to know his breed. I’ve guessed maybe Black Sex Link until he started getting the deeper richer colors. Now I’m wondering if he is a Black Copper Maran maybe? Thanks!!!
