    Is he black and the reddish feathers are sunburned or is he a partridge or something?

    No one is going to guess? Any Silkie people here?

    His red chest.
    Sorry they are not great. I have not had him long and we are working out dominance. He jumps at me when I leave the coop and I kick him across it.

    Interesting. Thank you. I was told he was black but he does not look black to me. I was wondering if he was something else.

    He looks like a blue partridge. If he is aggressive like that then he may not be worth keeping, especially if you intend to breed since aggressiveness is an inheritable trait.
    It is possible that he is a very light black/ overly dark blue but he definitely has the orange partridge coming through

    I am going to give him some time to chill out. He was an only rooster and he is now in a pen next to our big Americauna Cock. He is also a bit stressed by my dogs who are always trying to catch the darn doves in the EE pen. If he continues to be agressive he is going down the road.
