    It's a mixed breed bird.

    if you want us to try to puzzle out parentage, we'll need a better picture.

    I was hoping the five toes would help. I think he may be part EE. But I am clueless on chickens.

    Based on the muffs and five toes, I'm thinking he could have some Faverolle in him.

    I too think he is part faverolle - the males are colorful but, not colored like yours

    It is a clue. But, Faverolles have feathered legs and quite different coloring.

    I'm not seeing any EE there, besides a beard.

    Hatchery Rhode Island Red, aka production Red. Not really a "true" Rhode Island Red, but what passes for them in the majority of backyard flocks.
