If he has ear tufts, then he is not a Rhode Island Red/Wyandotte cross. He is probably an Easter Egger, or an Easter Egger mix.

When you start crossing a cross (the EE), the "rules" about things like leg color, etc go out the window

Easter egger/brown Leghorn hen....note the pretty yellow legs.

Pic above doesn't show muffs and beard well, but this bird also had yellow legs, you can clearly see her muffs.







I don't have a pic, but I have a mixed cockerel in the grow-out pen who is shades of red and black. Yellow legs, straight comb and large muffs!
