    Looks like an Easter Egger cockerel or a Delaware to me. Here is what my Delaware (a pullet) looks like at a few weeks younger than yours:

    But because the tail looks so much longer, I would think more strongly that it's an Easter Egger...and those "cheek" feathers are a good giveaway :) He is beautiful!

    Very possibly - other than beard and pea comb I would have guessed hatchery Delaware.

    Yep, the coloring is the same. But that's the beauty of EE- they come in about every color variety! :)

    Perhaps if you breed him, you will get some green/blue egg-laying offspring ;)!
