    I'm not sure it is an EE...what about the comb? Looks kinda tall to be a pea comb. my guy's comb is really flat compared to this one.

    I'm guessing EE also (uneducated guess lol). My EE roo also has a tall pea comb, but his momma was an EE and his daddy was a mutt cochin.

    That tall comb is often what you get when the bird is not pure for pea comb. He would be an Easter Egger, yes. They are not usually pure for anything, comb, leg color, eye color, egg color, plumage color, etc.

    He could be a cross of a pea combed bird and a single combed bird. You often see those tall combs like that with roosters of that cross.
