    Hi Everyone,
    I got this guy as my free rare chick from MM.

    I think he has willow legs and a rose comb. He's very striking, but I have no idea about his breed. What do you think?

    cockerel EE as well , NOT sure how McMurray can consider that a rare breed. As an Easter Egger (EE) is a cross breed chicken.

    Happily, my MMcM order's extra cockerel was a Fayoumi, who was too cute, and moved to another home later that summer. Someday I will have more Fayoumis!

    He's striking! EE roosters have so much color variety. He reminds me of a Faverolle rooster I once had though. I'd be curious & send a pic & message to the hatchery, they may have a better answer for you. Best wishes.
