    This handsome boy was given to me by a friend. IMG_20171128_191850.jpg Ricardo is very docile and my hens absolutely love him! He is definitely not aggressive. I would love to have an idea of what kind of rooster he is.

    Looks a lot like a Black Copper Marans roo to me.:) Could also be a mixed breed but I'm not sure on that.

    Crossbred. Looks to have some Brahma in him.

    Wait, what is his comb type? Is it a rose? A little hard to tell in the picture...

    Thank you both! Yes, he is a large bird for sure, so it wouldn't surprise me if he did have some Brahma in him

    Cross breed. Possibly a Brahma-Marans cross

    I'm going to change up my answer a bit;) just because he doesn't have a single comb, like marans...I would still say he's at least part marans though, mixed with a little something else to give him that rose comb.
