    He was a give-a-way from our local fair as a day-old in August. Just wondering if anyone may know his breed? PS - He has slate legs. Thanks for your help!

    I see a hint of a beard on him. I do believe he is an Easter Egger rooster. He actually has yellowish/greenish type legs which is typical of Easter Eggers. He does not have slate legs. Slate legs are actually blue-grey colored legs. See the little blue leg on my avatar rooster, his legs are blue/slate in color. See the difference?
    Your rooster is a nice big boy! [​IMG]

    Easter Egger is what I was hoping for (if not Americauna) I have one hen that lays a beautiful sky blue egg and two other girls that lay green. Hmm... anyone think BABY CHICKS!![​IMG]

    That was from our Comet/Red Star. Our 1st egg from our 1st hen EVER. I was worried that she was a mutant - never heard of 3 yolks before! [​IMG]

    No, unfortunately no more triples. I am hoping to get a couple ( or More) pullets this weekend for my daughters 6th birthday. Now, she is a chicken NUT! Hugs them, feeds them out of her hands, scoops poop, absolutely loves all of it. [​IMG]
