    I would say his Spurs are just a hair too big for a 6 month old but otherwise I agree he is an Easter egger and I would say he's under a year old

    I can't see what type of comb he has, is it pea or straight?

    I'm not seeing any real EE characteristics there. That's not a classic color for a hatchery EE. He could always be a home made mix, of course.

    This is an Brahma/Ameruacana Cockerel...6 months old....Would be considered EE....Note pea comb, Cheek muffs.....And the colouring...

    I think the Cockerel mentioned is something else?

    Nice Bird what ever he is.....?

    Cheers!
