    Any ideas what breed or breeds could be within my rooster? He hatched from a blue egg as well as his parents. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I just had a bunch of eggs hatch and I'm curious what I'll have in store! Thanks!

    He's a mixed breed, could be classified as an Easter Egger as he does have blue egg parentage, but he may not have the genetics to breed blue egg progeny

    Well, I'm thinking if he came from a blue egg as did his parents that he's all Easter Egger.

    As there is no standard for easter eggers, characteristics like that do not amount to inclusion/exclusion in the group identification. Green legs are the most common, but because a wide variety of breeds are used the genetics of dominant and recessive traits run a wide spectrum of resulting appearance
