    I know it's not the greatest picture, but I was wondering if anybody could hazard a guess as to which breed my handsome boy might be?

    To really be able to guess, we would need to see or know what kind of comb he has and if he's got a beard.

    From stance and legs--my first guess would be Easter Egger.

    Are you familiar enough with comb type to tell us what comb type he has? The second picture appears to show what may be a pea comb. Do I see white ear lobes or is that just the angle or lighting of the second photo?

    Ears do look white to me. Maybe Hamburg--but he seems a bit too large? Comb looks perhaps damaged from frostbite--but it would be very helpful to have a better shot of it.

    He looks like he has a pea comb to me. I think that he may be an Easter Egger, possibly mixed with game bird, based on the body type.
