    Hey! I have had this pretty guy for a while, and ive made many posts about him allready! I have now decided that he is either a wellsummer, Black Copper Maran, or some kind of mix ( i was thinking Black Australorp-Dorking). He is about 4 months old. He is pretty calm, and quiet but he can be very assertive if some other chicken pecks at him. He has crowed but seems a little shy about it. He is a beautiful roster and id really like to know what breed he is!! the first few pics are of when he was a lot younger just so ya know!


    Here he is younger.

    He looks like a marans or a marans mix. Certainly not a welsummer.

    I wouldn't say Welsummer. Looks like he has 5 toes. Must me a cross between Red Dorking and Black Giant or Australorp. Maybe a Black Copper MaransxRed Dorking cross? Looks like he didn't inherit the long Dorking body.

    Sorry, I was out of town and trying to post from my phone. I tried to post a picture of a welsummer rooster, but it wouldn't work - so here it is:
