    Any opinions as to what he may be? I've had people suggest buff brahma x Orpington cross, he's a big boy so I'm thinking they may be right, what do you guys think? Any ideas on the black hen too? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm don't know about the rooster (He does look like he has orpington in him though.) The black hen looks like a Black-Sex Link.

    I can see the Orpington in the rooster, but not the Brahma. Brahmas have feathered legs, a dominant trait, so he would too if one parent were Brahma. Definitely mixed with something that didn't have a straight comb, though!

    The hen has the classic black sex link coloring, so that's the most logical guess.

    As others have said you have a black sex link hen, and an Orpington cross rooster. The cross?????
