    I was told he's auracana, which clearly he's not. A couple of people have suggested OEG but I believe he's got the wrong comb. He's probably some sort of mix, he and his sibling/offspring typically produce hens that looks like the small red-ish hen in the background with the occasional white hen like the one shown.

    I know EE's are mutts but do the roos look like this? The hens I've got lay pink & green eggs.

    First off, even though EE's can be mixed breeds, this one DOES NOT have a pea comb that usual EE's have. He has a rose comb which makes me believe he is mixed with some wyandotte or another rose combed breed.
