Is this cockerel a Barnevelder?

Trying to figure out what breed one of our young roosters is. We had a few black feathered chicks amongst our new flock, the breed list the feed store gave us included Barnevelder and Black Jersey Giant so I figured he was one of those two...but my son also brought home from school an unknown breed black feathered chick and he could be that one too.

He seems pretty friendly and calm compared to the other rooster we have. He's also MUCH larger size and seems to be taking longer to mature. He was more black until the last couple weeks when he started going that charcoal color and the red started coming out.

Thanks for the identification help!
