    He's most likely a Black Australorp. Are the bottoms of his feet white?

    If his feet are pale and whitish, he's an Australorp. Otherwise, he's a Jersey Giant or a Java.

    No, I don't think so. Black Marans aren't all that common, and Marans usually have feathered legs (unless they are the English variety).

    we already have a black australorp and his tail feathers are really different.and he is too small to be a jersey giant or java
