    We just got a rooster today and am not so great with chicken breeds, let alone rooster breeds lol. I was wondering if you guys know what breed my 4 month old Rooster is? I am thinking Barnevelder but Im not so sure. What do you guys think?

    Does he have feathers on his legs? If he does, then he's a Black copper Marans.

    Looks very similar to a Black Copper Marans. But crossbreds can look like purebreds sometimes. . .
