    Hoping you're wrong, but that was my guess too. LOL, I have 8 chicks, this is the oldest, so I was trying to give "her" the benefit of the doubt and hope her comb was just stuck out a little more ;)

    Anyone else have an oppinion?

    Cockerel, comb and wattles are very large, coloring is splotchy. Doesn't look much like an Easter Egger [​IMG]

    Where did you get him? That would be able to give us an idea. If you got him from a hatchery, or someone local who could just have had a few mixes...

    He doesn't look like an EE because he has yellow legs, no beard/muff and a single comb.

    Not all EE's have a beard or muffs. EE is just a breed of chicken that lays colored eggs. Like green, or blue.
