    Looks like a mixed breed to me, possibly an Easter Egger. Beautiful rooster!

    He is a gorgeous bird, pics do not do him justice. Mixed breed is very possible and quite likely. Just didn't know if something was favored.

    The pea-ish comb and beard show Easter egger heritage, but they usually have dark legs. The lacing on the breast could come from something like a Wyandotte, but other than that, nothing really sticks out. He's my favorite--Barnyard Mix [​IMG]

    I agree with donrae on his heritage. He's definitely a mixed breed rooster.

    X3 on Donrae's advice. I'd suspect an Easter Egger/Wyandotte mix, or maybe a Easter Egger/Leghorn mix.
