    We ordered our Pullets from a hatchery through our local Co-op. We ordered 10 Easter Eggers, 6 Black Australorps, 2 Rhode Island Reds and 2 Welsummers.. According to looking and counting the chickens Sprinkles should be one of our Easter Eggers but looks nothing like the others.. Just possibly an oddball?

    Sprinkles is an EE. They come in all sorts of colors and patterns. Sprinkles also looks different because he's a cockerel.

    I thought he might be a Roo. If he is it looks like 1 out of 20 and the hatchery did okay.
