    Yes, it's a cockerel. The red wing patches tell us that, a male trait.

    EE's are mix breeds, that don't have to have green shanks.

    True. EEs can have ANY color legs, ANY color eyes, ANY color plumage, and lay ANY color egg. They are mixed, not rhyme or reason to them. I've had them with slate legs like a true Ameraucana, white legs and yellow legs as well as greenish legs.

    Thanks everyone, he was supposed to be an amerucana pullet but I guess not so much. Now to decide what to do with him. :/

    Does anyone know what he will look like once he's grown up. He's only 7 weeks old here

    I've seen some like him here on BYC, surely someone has a photo of their grown one to show you.
