Breed of Rooster

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

My wife and I recently got a Rooster in with a crate of Ameraucana hens at an auction and we can't determine what he is. Here are two of the best pictures I could get of him in the coop(sorry for the poor quality) He has a few sparse feathers on his legs and feet and is actually quite a magnificent rooster. Any and all help is GREATLY appreciated as I have only dealt with leghorns up until now... Couldn't get the photos to show so I provided direct links...

Pictures don't work but I can guarantee you if they were bought at auction, they are Easter eggers. The feathered shanks would indicate Cochin, Brahma or maran blood.

He's mixed enough no specific breed stands out. The combo of white skin and feathered legs could lend itself to Marans ancestry, but beyond that all you can really say is his parents were straight combed.

X2 on donrae's post; definitely a mixed breed.

He is a mix breed, with the lacing on his chest he looks like he may have some Silver Laced Wyandotte blood in him.
