What breed is my rooster?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I need some help identifying what breed my rooster might be. When we bought him we were told he was an Easter Egger, of course he was 6 weeks old then. Now he is grown and looks nothing like an Easter Egger, at least in my opinion. Any help would be appreciated.

He's an Easter Egger. There's not a standard look for an Easter Egger as they are hybrids produced by crossing blue egg layers with brown egg layers. Their appearance will depend on which breeds were used in the crosses. However most Easter Eggers will have a greenish tint to their legs and either pea or funky looking combs (like your bird).

I agree EE. If you mentally fill in his blue with black, he's a common EE rooster color. Myself, I love the blue and red, it's so striking! He's got a decent pea comb, so if you're interested in breeding colored layers he should be a good choice.

Easter Egger.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.
