    I think your "Easter Egger" is actually a light Brahma.

    I suspect #1 chick may be a cockerel but I'd give it a couple weeks to be sure.

    There is light brahma in the mix at some point. Your chick has light brahma markings and feathered legs. Most likely your roo is a light brahma mix

    TBH, I was looking at the chicks rather than the rooster but a Faverolles cross makes sense. Curious why you call him an Easter Egger? Did he hatch from a blue shelled egg?

    i got him from a neighbor that ordered a bunch of Easter eggers from a hatchery. Plus he has a muff/beard, pea comb. i sent a pick to the hatchery and they told me he was an Easter egger but could not tell me what they use to cross and create theirs.
