    I got him from mypetchicken.com and I ordered him as a BA but he isn't supost to have all these brown feathers. So what other breed is he? He is 17 weeks old. Could he be a mutt? He has really long tail feathers. Just saying.

    Tail feathers look normal to me, if anything on the short side but he is indeed young. He's most likely a mutt but the question is, what color are his shanks and soles?

    Shanks are pinkish blackish with some red and the soles are pink and back.

    I'd say it is a mutt, really.

    Not in conformation but in color, he looks a whole lot like roosters I got when I crossed a Speckled Sussex rooster over BA hens. Sometimes that leakage was gold and sometimes it was mahogany, but they all had it. I'd guess that a red rooster got into the BA breeding pen.

    None of my pullets from my SS over BA cross had any leakage. They were solid black, but all the roosters had leakage.
