    Hard to say exactly from your pics-could be a Welsummer. Could be a crossbreed. What color legs does he have?

    Can you get a pic of his whole body in the frame? That would probably be more helpful, now that we have seen his closeups of comb and color. Is he large or small?

    He is a gorgeous creature, gosh I love roosters they are all so pretty and have wonderful feather makeup, Im sorry I cant help with the breed as I only deal with silkies.
    But I hope you dont mind me admiring him anyway!!!

    is he a mixed breed maybe?? I am confused by his coloring, because he has the Blue/Grey Legs! everytime I think I have the right breed, I see those blue legs! I have no clue!

    Could Echo be a Black Sex Link (LS AND RIR)?? I have a pullet named Gracie that has the dark legs and black beak and she is probably a Sex link. He's coloring is much more intense than Gracie but he is a Roo. The pattern of reddish brown in Echo's feathers is alot like gracie's too. He is gorgeous and your ISA Brown is a nice look'in hen.
