    What kind of rooster do you think this is?

    I was told he was a black orpington, but I've been looking at other pictures of black orpingtons and I'm not seeing the red feathering around the neck. Could he still be a black orpington, perhaps crossed with another breed?

    I think that he's a cross, maybe with some Australorp or Orpington in him.
