    This is my rooster Wylie E. Coyote. Got him from a good friend for hunting down a coyote that was making meals of her free range birds (chickens, turkeys, ducks, and guinea's). He's a beautiful boy, and since all her birds are free ranged I know he's a mix. Any ideas? She has everything from Welsummers, Rhode Island Reds, Black Sussex, and 2 kinds of Orphingtons and she even has a Ameracuana rooster.

    My guess is that he is an Ameraucana mix, probably with Welsummer. This is because of his slate colored legs (Ameraucanas are the only bird that you listed that have slate legs) and his color pattern (similar to Welsummers).
