    I got this guy as a chick thinking he was a black Marans (not noticing his rose comb). He ended up with some Cochin feather feet and a smaller size body, although not quite bantam sized. I'm not sure if he is a pure bread or maybe half standard half bantam of some sort. Any ideas?

    He looks like a Black Copper Brahma.

    Oh and he can't be a Cochin becasue Cochin's have straight combs and he does not.

    Are BC Brahma's pretty small? This guy is maybe 2/3 the size of my standard size roosters.

    Brahmas have pea combs, this guy looks like a rose comb. He's a mixed breed bird. Mixed with what? Well, something rose combed and something feather footed.....beyond that, hard to say.

    These 2 also came from the same breeder and are pretty small. Maybe not bantam small but close.
