    Birchen Marans maybe? I say this as his legs look white not yellow and Marans can be feathered leg or clean.

    I think barnyard mix. Legs look dark to me, and all that white on the chest shows a mix of something.

    I agree, but I also think he may have some Maran in him.

    Pretty boy!

    That might be something like an OrpingDotte or Wellington as my kids call them
    Very tasty they are as well.

    The Hens we hatched have proven to be great little birds lovely green sheen to them.

    Yea, It looks like a mix, Looks birchen or seen similar in Barred Mixs... could be an Australorp x Barred Rock? Or Australorp x Birchen Maran?? Either way, If he is good to the hens and you are not using him , intending on improving a breed, then he is just as good as a standard.
