    Any ideas? When we first got him most of his feathers were missing.
    At first I was told he's a RIR, but then when his feathers grew back in they are green & purple?

    He looks like a Black Australorp to me, but I'm no expert on that breed. The green and purple are still considered black (it's just the iridescent tint to the feathers).

    OMG Thank you [​IMG] He does look just like the black Australorp! Funny thing too I had a chicken egg amongst my duck eggs & the little chick hatched today & looks just like the pic of the chick too!!
