Easter eggers are technically, any bird that produces a blue or green egg that does not meet the breed standard for Araucana or Ameraucana. They usually have Ameraucana somewhere in the genetics, but hatcheries have used production breeds to increase the laying rate. If you use him with your barred girl, and if he carries the blue egg gene, you would get sexlinked green egg layers.

And this one...
This one looks like an Australorp girl.

1st bird: Easter Egger cockerel
2nd bird: Barred Rock, probably a cockerel.
3rd bird: Black Australorp pullet
4th bird: If it has red on its chest, then it is a Black Sex-link pullet.

you think the barred is a cockerel? How do you tell the difference?
