    My guess is that he's a mix. Where did you get him?

    Could be a Black Copper Maran, hard to tell at that distance.

    I'm thinking Black Copper Marans, too. However, he could just as easily be a random barnyard mix.

    this. He's not Welsummer, the legs are the wrong color.

    I agree with BantamLover21 and Donrae. He's definitely not a Welsummer with those dark, slate colored legs.

    I didnt even look at the leg color, I just noticed the neck at second look was more like a Maran. Marans have slate legs so it could be one. But do they have feathers on their feet?
