    I just saw this handsome guy on Craigslist for $20. The ad states he is a rare breed, but didn't know what breed as he arrived in an "assortment of rare breeds" order from Connecticut. Any ideas of what he could be?

    Looks like an Easter egger to me too. Unless he is one of those tailed south American breeds, he's a mutt.

    Nope. Not rare. Hatcheries don't actually have any truly rare breeds.

    Agree he's an Easter egger.

    Lots of hatcheries classify their Easter egger type stock as a rare or exotic breed [​IMG]. And me, I can't give EE cockerels away......
