what breed do ya'll think this rooster is, just wondering, so if anybody ask I know what to tell them. Please
Easter Egger (Americauna) most likely.
An Easter Egger (aka Ameraucana) or an Easter egger crossed with something else. Pretty roo
Definitely a mixed breed cockerel; probably an Easter Egger (if he carries a blue egg gene).
hey, ty 4 responding,I'm having brown eggs, so u say definitely a mixed breed, do u know what?
You're getting brown eggs because your hens have the genetics to lay brown eggs. The rooster, if present, has no input on the egg color the hen lays. It's all programmed in her DNA and she lays the same color egg throughout her lifetime.
A male doesn't lay eggs, but still has genes for different egg shell colors. Your bird may have a blue egg gene, the only way to tell would be to breed him and see what the pullet offspring's egg colors are. Easter egger is kind of a catch all term for a mixed breed bird that has the genes for colored eggs.
