He is bearded and his comb looks like a smaller floppy single comb but more full. Also is he cuckoo or barred?

    I believe he is an Easter Egger unless he is a bad quality Araucana

    Looks like a mix. An EE would have a pea comb and i'm not quite sure what type of comb he has. And if had some EE in him he would have slate colored legs so cross that out. He sure is beautiful though!

    That was before I cleaned out everything, he's in a quarantine area before I add him to the flock.

    Also I thought he was at least part EE so is there any guess for what color offspring he would produce? He would go with my EE hens which are a rainbow of colors?

    Also what's the difference between cuckoo and barred and which would he be considered?

    They are from the same gene. Barring is straighter and more defined, but cuckoo is less defined. Generally he would be considered Crele. I guess it is more cuckoo than barred.
