    He's a very colorful rooster, but he's not black copper Marans. He's an Easter egger, at least mostly. I can't see leg color, but he's got a comb that indicates mixed heritage, and a beard and muffs. Those, plus that vibrant color, are classic Easter egger rooster signs. He may or may not carry genes for blue or green eggs, it's just hard to say until you breed him.

    Nope, not a BCM. He's a pretty Easter Egger.

    He is either EE mix or an Oliver Egger (possibly with a BCM parent).
