    Is this an Easter Egger? Looks really young to me but I don't know. Could this turn into a rooster? The legs are greenish/slate colored.

    I'm no expert by any means, but I have two Easter Eggers. Although the coloring is similar the build is all wrong. I can't tell you what it is but I'm fairly certain if it's an EE at all it's a mix w/ something else also.

    No, that's not an Easter Egger. It is a gorgeous gold duckwing, probably a Phoenix.

    Agreed, not an EE. It looks to be a game breed, although I'm not sure which one.

    This kinda looks like my phoenix chicks, I have 4 that i bought as 3 wk olds, 2 are roosters, 2 are pullets, one pullet looks like this but gray, skinny like build like this one, if it were a phoenix rooster the comb and waddle would be bigger, my two phoenix gals though look nothing alike, possible one is a mixed breed. I will try to get some pics

    Definitely a game bird. She may even be a standard Modern Game. Check out those stilt-like legs.

    She looks awful leggy for a Phoenix and the stance isn't quite look like a Phoenix either. Modern Game was the first thing that struck me.
