    I hope some of you can help me out. I want to post this bird in the BSA section, but I need to know what to call it. I do know that it is a rooster, it is already crowing. It isn't too bad, it does it like 4-5 times at 7am and then nothing for the rest of the day...but that is now. I am pretty sure it will get louder and more annoying to me and my neighbors. I think it is an EE because of the fuzzy face and green legs, if somone could confirm. Thanks for the help.

    I would list him as an EE.
    EEs can come in any various color combination. They don't have a standard. I have a few EE crosses (EE roo or EE hen X unknown) and I will call them EEs of course. The was I perceive EE is that has the potential to produce blue/green eggs (the hens anyways). But the rooster can carry the egg color gene if I'm not mistaken.
    If I'm wrong anyone fell free to express your thoughts.
