    From their looks, it looks like the rooster is a Birchen Brahma(Black wing triangle feathers), but it could be a dark brahma rooster instead(white wing triangle feathers) and is just a bad picture, his genetic background, if he is Birchen based(ER) all of his chicks will be heterozygous Birchen and will be mostly Birchen pattern but some may show golden color on breasts, if he is Dark Brahma, hens will look like dark patterned light brahma with the males having some golden feathers on hackle/saddle with light brahma patter.

    I am mentioned on my previous post, Birchen have an all black wing triangle and dark brahma have white wing triangle.

    for example the males on the following pictures, the one with solid wing triangle is the birchen one the other is wildtype(e+), but other alleles like eb(think dark brahma) and wheaten(think salmon faverolle).

    It is just WSG if the hen and rooster are not pure bred or inbred into a breed. I can only predict that the chicks from such a mating will be covered in feathers,.... maybe.
