    Hi all, it's great to find a new chicken community to learn from. I have a gorgeous rooster that my hubby got for me and I was hoping that someone here could tell me what breed he is. He is big & beautiful with feathers all the way down his legs and feet. We were thinking he might be a French Black Copper Maran but really have no idea as we are pretty new to having chickens. Thank you for your help.

    Thank you very much :) A friend of my husband had him and he was downsizing and they gave him to me because they knew how much I loved him. I hope someone knows.... because he is the only one I have that I don't know for sure what he is.

    Is that a BBred cochin? Black Breasted Red? It looks like the same colors as one

    It has an extra toe? it looks like a Cochin to me. I'll have to get out my Breed Standards book

    Black Copper Maran except the White tail feathers he looks just like my Roo. . Elvis does his crow sound horse or rough?? Not like you think it will??
    Im still guessing the Maran, But look up Jean Davis Marans or look in Meyer Hatchery they have real pictures not paintings of the birds, Cochan or Maran he is a really pretty fella !

    Very pretty rooster! Glad you found his breed. He looks just like my golden laced cochin, Goliath, except the chest!
