    This was purchased as a pullet, but it is obviously not. What do you guys think this guy is?

    Thanks,

    Delaware mix?

    Does he have face tufts? A better picture would help.

    I'm guessing EE X Delaware or Columbian Rock.

    Pretty bird.

    Looks like a EE to me. A Delaware doesn't have that much black in his feathers.

    I've never seen an EE with those colors.
    I'm pretty sure it's EE X Delaware. That would account for the black/green tail.

    EE can be any combination of colors. Even though he's got the monochrome color he doesn't have any traits that look Delawarish to me. His come is way smaller, the legs are green and his feathers have a green sheen to them. Here's a pic of my Dellie roo:

    Whatever he is, he's gorgeous! I hope one of my EE's hatch out and look like him. [​IMG]
