    I would guess that he is a very handsome Easter Egger Roo...
    Are his legs greenish?

    Looks like an Easter Egger or Easter Egger mix to me.

    He's definitely a mixed breed; he could be an Easter Egger.

    I got him from a local farmer who had a variety of breeds. Ameraucanas, EEs, silkies, some game birds. I'm curious what he is, he's polite and good with the girls so far.

    Thanks I hope he is an EE! I have EE girls. I hope I get lucky and he's got the colored egg gene. I will check his legs when I get home.
