    He's probably a Black Australorp, but could also be a Black Orpington, Black Jersey Giant, or a mixed breed.

    Agreed, but most likely a Black Australorp as they are considerably more common than the other two breeds. Check the bottoms of the feet. If the bottoms of the feet are yellow, you have a Black Jersey Giant; if whitish or grayish, you have either a Black Australorp or Black Orpington.
