I'm told he came from McMurray hatchery. He is not quite full grown, so he may not have his full plumage yet.

I was thinking he could be a wyandotte, but his leg color is dark and not a true yellow. Perhaps an Easter Egger, but he has no beard.

Thanks in advance!

I had an easter egger hen that looked quite a bit like him. She was also from McMurray. She laid gorgeous huge green eggs and all of her daughters do too... Though they are all broody right now... She had the same coloring and markings as yours and was also non-bearded. Oddly enough, 2 of her chicks had feathered legs, though she did not. It makes me wonder what all is mixed into their Easter eggers' backgrounds.

Thanks everyone! I guess I'm call him a McMurray Easter Egger then.

My other "Easter Eggers" came from a different hatchery. They look exactly like Ameraucanas complete with a beard and they lay blue eggs. I was a little confused since this guy doesn't have a beard. Maybe he has a lot of wyandotte in there some place. He sure is pretty though!
