    It's definitely a mixed breed cockerel and is likely an Easter Egger, assuming it carries the blue egg gene.

    Thank you for confirming. Unfortunately he has now gone back to where I bought him, along with two Rhode Island Red Cockerels, I kept a buff orpington. These were all bought as hens three months ago and I ended up with four cockerels!

    He looks exactly like the EE/ buff Orpington mixes I hatched awhile back.

    Hey brc! New here... Wondering if my 8 week old EE (Frosty) is a cockerel or pullet??? He/she shows a lot of dominant behavior, like face-offs with raised hackles against the other girls. Thanks for the help! [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][/IMG][​IMG]
