    Could it be a Production Red cockerel? I have them, got them from the "red pullet" bin at Tractor Supply.

    With a pea comb, it makes him a EE cockerel.

    easter eggers are a mixed breed of chicken that can lay coloured eggs. Depending on its heritage its legs can be any colour and can be bearded or not, have a peacomb or some wierd inbetween thing from mixing comb types.

    He looks to be a young EE cockeral. I've found chicks legs sometimes change color as they mature, but the previous poster is correct. EE chickens are mixes and can have any color leg.
