    I agree, the photo has been edited. The color is enhanced and the edges look a bit softened, but none the less he is VERY handsome!!!!

    Edited because I cant spell!

    No, NOT a welsummer.


    He could be a rock, but I think he is more likely a Barnevelder. That would explain the high gloss on the black feathers - something that rocks don't have compared to the high quality Barnevelders.


    The photo may not necesarily be inhanced if it was taken with a good camera/lense.
