    I was wondering if anyone could tell me what Breed my rooster is. The person that sold him to me said he is 4 months oldand thought he was an Easter egger. Is this accurate?

    Well, looking at him I don't think EE, I think silkie mix. Not first generation probably, but the funky comb, lightly feathered legs, beard, dark skin, those all say silkie ancestry to me. Does he have five toes?

    Now, silkie mixed with what is the question. Could easily be mixed with EE. Hard to say since roosters don't lay eggs [​IMG]

    I think he only has 4...someone on another forum said he was an Ameraucana. But I'd love to hear more opinions.

    Absolutely not an Ameraucana - very likely an EE with a strong influence of silky DNA ad Donrae has suggested.
