    The only breed I know of that has green legs are EE's. It looks like a pullet to me

    2nd on the EE. I am leaning towards a roo. Very neat color though. Should be interesting when "it" gets older.

    EE roo, I suspect he will be very nice looking when he gets older.

    I have no idea how old it is. It was just given to my son today for falcon food. It is too pretty to just be eaten especially if it is an EE. I think we will keep it a while and see. If anyone else wants to chime in on the vote, please do.

    Usually the roos are fancier colored than the females. Also, in this case, his comb is reddish and he's probably not any older than 10 weeks. Get him some EE girls and keep them all [​IMG]

    Falcon Food? His comb is starting to turn red and he has a roo face. I know it sounds funny that they have different faces, but after a while you will learn to spot it. I have been fooled many times though. I use the look of the face in combination of other factors, as Break an Egg said EE roos are fancier in their coloring and this one is fancy! It still could go either way, but I am leaning toward roo.
