Doesn't look like my whitings. I'd say Easter Egger.
we ordered the chicks from Murray McMurray hatchery (amazing hatchery)and we didn't order any Easter eggers. We specifically bought those three breed a question about. The other chicks I ordered are obvious on what breed they are. But I know whiting True blues I read can have cheeks and they look like all kinds of breeds. I've added updated photos
Ahhhhh!!!!

Not Red Star (wrong comb, wrong cheeks.)

Whiting True Blue vs. Ameraucana: both should have pea combs, both can have puffy cheeks, both can come in multiple colors, both are supposed to lay blue and/or green eggs.

McMurray says the Ameraucanas should have green legs, and the Whiting True Blue should have "variable" leg color. You chick appears to have pale legs, so I think it's more likely to be a Whiting True Blue. But I don't think there's any way to absolutely sure which of those two breeds it is.

all of my WTB's are clean faced.
I know someone who got four Whiting True Blues this summer, and three had muff/beard, so apparently it's not consistent. How many did you get? (I'm getting curious how many of them have what kind of face.)
