    Looks like a roo, and maybe a really dark spangled hamburg or X.

    I agree he looks like a spangled humburg, did you get him from a hatchery or feed store?

    It looks like a hamburg cross. I breed some hamburgs and they look fairly dotted with blue shade feet. This is a hamburg cross because of the black patch in the middle. They are a good breed anyway

    He's their version of a Spangled Hamburg, I've gotten some from them that are really really dark also.
