    I got this rooster for my hen. The owner said he is Marans, but it does look like Ameraucana. Can someone help me identify him?

    Quote:There is no feather feet. The feet color is black/blue like the body feather. I've seen cochin before and this rooster is smaller than cochin.

    What kind of comb does he have? He looks like he could be a blue Marans but that comb doesn't look right.

    Looks exactly like my friend's blue wyandotte. They could be twins.

    Definitly not a marans. I'd have to say Wyandotte

    That's a pea comb, it isn't a Wyandotte. Wyandottes have rose combs. [​IMG]

    I'm guessing it's an Easter Egger, or a hybrid of some sort. Easter Eggers don't need to have muffs, nor do they need a beard.
