    My guess would be an Easter Egger. Could you post a photo of the comb?

    Could be an EE (maybe), could be a mutt (where did you get it from?)
    Looks to me to be a hatchery quality SLW or SLW mix legs are wrong color and it's a bit wonky but that's my best guess.
    Very cute though :)

    Going to agree with the EE...
    Also seeing a hint of red in the comb? Hard to tell.
    Every rare/exotic breed I've gotten from McMurray has been a roo, so between that and seeing maybe a hint of red, thinking a roo.

    The legs do sort of look green... Agree Easter egger. To young for me to call gender.
