    I need help figuring out what in the world this thing is. I had originally assumed him to be a Wheaten Ameracauna, but he doesn't have any tuft/beard and his feather pattern isn't right. It's possible he's a mutt, we got him at an auction, but I wanted to see if maybe his breed just wasn't in the standard.
    Red earlobes, yellow legs, pea comb, yellow beak with some brown.
    Thanks!

    Should have slate legs and white skin if he's an Ameraucana. You have an EE.

    So he's not really any specific breed, just Easter Egger?

    It seems very likely, though a picture would be helpful.

    I'm gonna say a farmyard mix. Technically, the Easter Egger is such a thing, but since without breeding him and waiting until his daughters lay, you won't know if he carries the blue egg gene. For this reason, I'm gonna stick with barnyard mix.
