    Looks like an Easter Egger, a mix with Ameraucana/Araucana in his background.

    Ok thanks! The color just threw me off and I thought Easter eggers were smaller

    Easter Egger rooster. EEs can be any color and have many different features. The only thing that all EEs share is the fact that they lay colored eggs, and often have muffs and a beard.

    He's an Easter Egger rooster. Easter Eggers come in all colors, as they are mixes, and because they are mixes, can also be all sizes. The only thing that defines an Easter Egger is that they lay colored eggs. Pretty boy!
