    He reminds me of a Black Copper Marans, though he doesn't look pure. This was just a guess.

    Yeah, looks like he is a hybrid, at least. He'll be lovely when he matures all the same. My hens are thorough bred so I might get a black orp roo for breeding in the future ...

    Looks like a mix to me, maybe with some Black Copper Marans in him.
