    Looks like a rooster to me - red comb too early for a girl- pictures are pretty blurry otherwise

    From what I can tell, he's an Easter Egger Bantam. He was in the mixed bantams pen when I got him. I am going to try and recreate his color pattern by breeding him to my Golden Sebright and then breeding his daughters back to him.
