You might get a better answer in the genetic forum or the Orpington forum. Either way your rooster is gorgeous. Now I want one myself.

Im looking at your pics on my phone so kinda hard to see but it does look like leakage and if so no he shouldnt be used.
I picked up one with the same thing. I was told he was being culled because of gold leakage in hackles and saddle. In mine you can see some streaking that is lighter then the chocolate.
Mine is not breeding quality just for that reason also. He is a great backyard flock rooster though.
