    Hello and thank you all for your help. I just bought this rooster from a farm that had a mixed flock. I think he is beautiful and looks most like an Ameraucana or EE to me. What do you think? I plan to hatch eggs that he fertilizes from an Olive Egger that is black with green irridescent feathers that was a cross between BCM and EE. They are a handsome pair! I am trying to figure out if I will have the double tuft 25% loss. So..

    Is this rooster tufted? What breed do you guess he may be? Do you foresee any other problems? If they are both tufted, is candling at the usually recommended times sufficient?

    Sorry about all the rooster photo copies. I didn't think they were uploading. There are two hen photos at the end.

    Thank you for any advice or cautions you may have.
