    This lovely little 6 week old boy is our resident mystery chick. He was bought from My Pet Chicken as an "assorted non-feather legged bantam straight run" chick and started crowing a few days ago. Is he an Easter Egger cockerel? Or do only the pullets have this coloring so he's something else? Thanks much!

    Seeing how he's a bantam, he would be a d'anver.

    Quote:Thanks... I'm curious, though. The way you said this, it seems like you're ruling EE out because this is a bantam chick. Do EEs not come in this color for a bantam roo?

    Is that a total no for the D'Anvers idea?

    ETA: He looks like one to me...
