    How old?

    Not real good with breeds, but best guess is a cockeral. Time will tell!

    EE maybe ? The chest looks kinda like my Barred Rock, but I don't know what the baby might be mixed with. Pretty chicken. Looks like a roo to me.

    I had an EE with yellow, and currently have one with white legs. It all depends on the mix.

    He's an ameracauna, I'm absolutely positive. Those specific breeds are very hard to sex.

    Looks like a larger version of my Ameraucana, pretty sure it's a roo though.

    It kinda looks like a partridge rock pullet but I don't think they lool like that as chicks...I'll do some research [​IMG]
    As a side note EE or Ameracaunas have pea combs not single combs as this one seems to have. All my Ameraucanas also have green legs and muffs on their faces. At 1 month old my Ameracauna cockerel also has a red comb so it might be a hen? I'm no expert though [​IMG]
