    Looks as if he might be a dark brown leghorn.

    He looks very much like a black andalusian to me. He could possibly be a white-faced black spanish, but if that is the case you will be able to tell over time as his face beings to turn white.

    You said he's red and black but I only see black? The roo I see looks like possibly an andalusian or mincora, I'm not sure on leg color, etc for each of them but think the andalusians are lighter built.

    It looks like a Dark Brown Leghorn or Dark Brown Leghorn mix. His body is a bit "heavy" to be a Leghorn, but the white in the earlobe also looks smutty.

    He could be a minorca as well. I totally forgot about that breed.
