    Could someone please help me with names of some of the darker skinned chicken breeds? My guy has got to be mixed with one of them, just trying to get an idea.

    Maybe a Sumatra mix. The only other common breed with black skin is Silkie, and their crests and feathered legs are dominant traits.

    Maybe crossed with "Svart hona" or "Ayam cemani" ?

    Beautiful bird - love his dark eyes - if he has a good personality, you might want to keep him and breed to some dark skinned breeds .
