    You have an Easter Egger cockerel, and he is indeed beautiful.

    Oh dear I was thinking it was a hen. It is only about 14 weeks old. Well I guess that's ok too. So there is no name for the coloring?

    He is almost a blue laced - the mahogany wing patches pretty much indicate his gender. He will mature into a striking bird.

    Guess I won't expect any eggs out of him!

    But he could sire some pretty pullets.

    Ha Ha LOL! too funny, when I got up this morning and let the chickens out he was trying to do his first crowing. Sounds so funny. For sure he is a cockerel!
