    Someone gave me this rooster and said it was an Ameraucana (Easter Egger) But I'm looking at his yellow legs and him overall and it sure looks like a Leghorn to me. Can anyone verify one way or another or tell me what it is if it's neither?

    This is what a Leghorn looks like. Looks pretty similar to me


    Thanks in advance,

    It actually looks like an Easter egger leghorn cross.

    I have another white rooster with blue legs that has long feathers on his head like a Heavy Metal Chicken LOL they even cover his eyes. I have to trim them so he can see. Is that an Easter egger or a cross as well? I had a blue egg hatch today and the chick has yellow legs, yellow feather but with a few black dots. The one behind him is also from am blue egg and he is black. Same rooster for both

    Sounds like more like a crested breed like polish or silkie.

    "The Dude" does appear to be a bearded White Polish, assuming he has no feathers on his legs.

    First rooster is a mixed breed. He may well be a mix of mixes, with some Leghorn blood. But not a Leghorn. First, wrong leg color. Second, no white earlobes. Third--not sure what's up with his comb? but he has very small wattles, Leghorns have large dramatic wattles.

    Your white bearded Polish is very striking! He'll make some very interesting looking mixed breed chicks.
