Hello what breed and gender is this chick?

- It is about 5 weeks old.
- Legs are turning a blueish and black colour
- It has what looks like black sprinkles on its feathers (hard to see in picture)
- Quiet, eats everything

THANKS

I got it from a bird shop, the owner breeds his own chickens. He doesn't know the breed name but he did mention it was birthed by a "chicken with black neck feathers".

If it were to be a purebred anything, my guess would be splash Ameraucana cockerel. But from your description of the source, I'm thinking mixed breed cockerel is more appropriate.

Agree with everyone above, for Cockerel & possible Easter Egger or Ameraucana mix with something else? Will be interesting to see if his feathering colors remain white with touch of black.
