    The pattern reminds me of the copper marans with the roosters being patterned and hens mostly solid

    But as far as the patterning goes. When the coppers first started showing up for sale alot of the hens were solid black (like a couple of the hens in the picture you just posted). I'm not saying that is what they are, it just reminds me of a poor birchen looking rooster
