    A mixed breed rooster who likely is the result of some Easter Egger crossing.

    I was thinking that also, with him having a beard and muffs. He really is a beautiful rooster. He loves his picture taken too :)

    Might be a Production Red, Easter Egger, or Faverolles mix.

    Agree on this. I have a very similar colored cockerel in the grow-out pen. Same straight comb and yellow legs, and big ol muffs sticking out the sides! My guy had an EE/Leghorn momma, and daddy was something like a Welsummer hen under a black sex link rooster. True barnyard mix!
