What breed is this
What's the breed. Also hen or rooster?? Thank you
cuckoo marans feathered legs and straight comb are the signs my guess would be a roo because of those wattles, and
Not a Marans, legs look yellow. Looks like a black sex linked Cochin mix to me.
ETA: How old is this bird? Where did you get it?
I got to say it looks like a Cochin the small body just proves to me that's a chochin
I got it from Jacksonville's farmer market. I got it from Jacksonville's farmer market. I've had him for about a month I'm guessing he is about two months old
my guess is it is simply an EE
What does that mean??
EE= Easter Egger
Being that there are a variety fo guesses on his breed, he's most likely a mixed breed of all of those or just simply an EE (Easter Egger)
Easter Eggers are Ameraucana mixes and non-standard Ameraucanas that carry genes for blue eggs. This bird has none of the traits that Easter Eggers generally have, that are mostly or partially dominant: beard, pea comb, green shanks. Of course you can have a beardless Easter Egger. Sometimes people get an Easter Egger that doesn't lay blue or green eggs (I'd stop calling it an Easter Egger the day I see a pullet lay a brown or white egg). However, to have a bird with feathered yellow shanks, single comb and no beard? Occam's Razor suggests that be a Cochin or Cochin mix.
