he looks like the sort of cross you get from isabrowns to another breed.................or even a grown up male isabrown, which are not all that common due to them being sex linked and usually culled at birth.

I replied to this but it seems to have disappeared!

I said much the same as caladenia - looks like the male of the brown cross breed layers (Isa Brown or Hyline etc). not much use for breeding but should make a ncie boy.

I agree he looks like a male of a hy-line brown layer so he is not a purebreed. I had a few myself, not good for breeding but nice temperament and very protective of the hens.
