    Is it possible he is a black sex-link chicken? The males look similar to barred rocks, but I believe they can have some brown in their feathers.

    thats what people were saying as he does not have clean cut bars but are more zigzagged then strait lol so that just helped the theory have him being a sex link, but it was just weird it wasnt alot of feathers it was like a feather here and then a feather there but i am going to try to get pics today wish me luck lol

    Where did you get your chick? What are the possibilities of it being a black sex-link chick? How old is it and do you have any pictures of its entire body (with or without the brown feathers showing)?
