    Looks like a mixed breed. He appears to be part Marans

    Between the Black & rusty orange/red colored feathers and the green tinted tail I would say Maran mixed with something else.

    Could be Marans mix. Could be a lot of other things. :)

    Just because he sort of looks like a Marans, does not mean he's got Marans ancestry. Something solid black crossed with just about anything else would produce a similar look.
