    Sorry, can't see the rooster. You have a Barred Plymouth Rock and an Easter Egger hen; though neither is known for being especially broody, I have one friend with a Barred Rock and another with an Easter Egger who go broody from time to time.

    The Barred Rock is the black and white one.

    the small picture is of a leghorn rooster. If it's a hen, it has the largest comb/wattles I've ever seen on a hen.

    Quote:They are a mutt. A mixed breed chicken that carried the Araucana/Americauna gene for the blue egg which combined with the brown egg shell color lets them lay blue, green, pinkish etc lightly colored eggs - i.e. easter eggs.

    Quote:That would indeed be rooster behavior.

    I agree. White leg horn rooster. Barred Rock. Easter Eggers.
