    I purchased him as a mystery chick from Murray McMurray Hatchery. Anybody know what breed he is? I want to find him a girl.

    Those green legs are pointing toward Easter Egger, which is a mixed breed .

    He looks sort of like an Egyptian Fayoumi. If he is, he is a poor quality one.

    Just about every big hatchery has them. Ideal, Cackle, Meyer, Privett, Murray McMurray, and Sand Hill Preservation all have them.
