    It is a cross bred roo. It has some EE or Ameraucana in it, but it is not really either, as neither one should have feathered legs.

    Well, up until the feathered legs I was with you on EE.

    It's a cockerel though! [​IMG]

    I'm going to guess Cochin x Easter Egger. Cochin because it looks like a pea comb x single comb cross, and the leg-feathering is copious considering it's got EE in it.
