He looks black patterned gold columbian to me--which is basically duckwing with columbian markings. Not buff. Pretty bird, though.

I think your chicks will be black, mind you.
Also, I think so.
The rooster carries the gene E ^ b / E ^ b while the hen carries the gene E / E
The children will be all E / E ^ b and will show the dominant color black.
