    He was from my daughters classroom hatch. I have no clue where he came from, there were a lot of donations that year (none from me). He is black with gold and green feathers. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Looks like a mixed breed to me.

    I think so too. I was just hoping for maybe a clue as to what. I'm hatching out eggs and I have no clue what he is. All the babies have been black like him though.

    Could you post pictures with better lighting?

    Looks like he may have some Australorp or Marans in him, but it's hard to tell. How old and big is he?
