    I don't see any game, and definitely don't see any cochin. Could be Marans, although I'd expect feathered legs. My guess is Welsummer. They usually have more yellow legs, but this guy's could have just faded with age.

    He used to have feathered feet. And most of his offspring have feathered legs.

    I guess he is a black copper maran mix. Thanks for your advice.
