    Looks like a pretty mixed breed to me. Where did you get him?

    I agree, he's mixed to the point of not being able to identify a specific ancestry--a mix of mixes, so to speak.

    I bought him from a man for 5$ I thought he was mixed but I just wanted other people's suggestions. Thank y'all, Im pretty sure he fertilized some eggs from an Easter egger and light brown leghorn, so I wanted to know what color eggs they'll lay. I guess we'll see!

    He most likely carries brown egg genes, so you'll probably get light brown eggs from the leghorn's female offspring, and the EE's offspring will be a crapshoot--if she lays green eggs her pullets will lay green, most likely. If she lays green, her offspring may lay a muddy green or brown.

    He kind of looks like my Big Dip who is a Silver Laced Wyandotte and Black Sex-Link mix.
