    I got Deacon for free from one of my mom's coworkers, and the lady had no idea what he was. Any help would be appreciated, and let me know if you need better pictures!

    Thanks!

    Do you know what hatchery he came from? Or did somebody hatch him?

    She couldn't give me any information on him. :( I know as much as you at this point.

    Edit: Well, she did say she got some all black babies from him that grew up to be iridescent black birds. Not sure if that helps?

    My thought is good old fashioned barnyard mix.

    I'm gonna have to go with a crossbred as well. Nothing pure is coming to mind for me.
