    This guy came in an order we received from a hatchery. He was the free "exotic" bird that they include with every order. Needing help identifying his breed. He is 13 weeks old and has just started crowing. Thanks in advance![​IMG]

    He looks like a non bearded easter egger. Which hatchery?

    With the green legs I would have to agree with Firekin. Looks like a muff-less EE.

    On second look I do see a tiny bit of a muff on him 100% sure he is an EE

    He is definitely an Easter Egger rooster. The greenish legs are a dead giveaway.
