    It's comb is getting pretty red. Not sure exactly on the breed. The egg was from a coworker that my broody buff hatched. It was a blue egg so easter egger type for the layer, not too sure what kind of rooster she has. It's around 6-7 weeks

    I would vote roo with the red comb and three rows of dots.

    x2, If he came out of a blue egg then he could be some kind of Easter Egger mix (maybe EE/Cochin).

    common feather footed breeds are cochin, brahma, marans and faverolle. Can't really tell from the pics what body type he has, so it's hard to narrow it down. He is male.

    Looks like a rooster. As for the breed, he is probably and Easter Egger mixed with a Cochin or a Marans.

    well that's unfortunate. Being the first one ever hatched from an egg there is a bit of a bond to it I guess. Bah, why couldn't it have been a hen !?

    Thank you for your responses even though they were the bad news I was thinking it might be. I was just hopeful that we were wrong in thinking it's most likely a roo
