    I haven't a guess, but he's good looking. Are his leg feathered and what color are they?

    Okay so I was wrong his legs are actually a pink color. Here are a few more closer up pics if that helps.[​IMG]

    Do you know if he's suppose to be a purebred? I think he's a mix, with pink legs my thoughts would be a speckled Sussex mix, perhaps mixed with brown leghorn or welsummer.

    I don't think he's a black copper maran. He doesn't look like my roosters. I agree with others, quite possibly a mix.

    Ok cool well he's still pretty and quite friendly for a Roo! My husband picked them up from a feed store out of a bin of several different breeds we were told that we could tell what he was when it was grown! Lol!

    Well, that's really the most important thing when it comes to roosters. It all boils down to temperament.
