    Would appreciate any help on this one.

    - i've noticed the saddle feathers a long/pointy
    - its tail features are long, and have a green cast to them (not easily seen on photo)

    No crowing yet though. Appreciate any help!

    Thanks!

    [​IMG] You have an Easter Egger cockerel. Many hatcheries/farm stores sell these birds as : Americana, Americauna or even Ameraucana (a real breed), but in reality they are birds generally carrying the blue egg laying gene although they are crossbreds.
