    I am a newbie, but I don't think so..He has a pea comb, muffs, green legs?

    I would guess that it's an Easter Egger (EE). I don't think Orpingtons have green legs! though i may be wrong! The face looks EE as well. [​IMG]

    Well, I am beside myself with excitement....I actually
    got the picture in the post!!! This place is so awesome!!

    I thought it was a White Americaunana crossed with?

    I noticed that he
    is not pure white...kind of has a slight yellow tinge at tips of
    his feathers.

    I am ok with another Roo, but I guess it is the same problem a lot of us have.. this is my 4th roo. I have Buttercup Rooster,

    and three cockerels..Eddy, a Japanese Batam..I think.
    He was in the same group as the white EE...he is very short,
    black tail straight up...cute little guy...tries to crow...then I have
    and Gio another Buttercup. I have Gio and his sister, Sophie.
    There father is my Buttercup Rooster, and their mom was
    a victim of a raccoon, but I had saved three eggs from her..
    and the results was Gio, Sophie and Joe Cool.

    I thought this EE was going to be aggressive..started crowing
    very young..and chasing the girls..but he has sinced calmed down..maybe because some of the girls are BIGGER than he is...

    He is very nice. I love all my EE's and haven't found them to be aggressive. They are usually very nice birds.
