Pictured is a rooster chick that I hatched out the end of October 2015. He is Buff Orpington on the Rooster side and Easter Egger on the hen side. I have been hatching a while and I am moving towards purebred chicks, not necessarily show quality, my customer base is backyard poultry for eggs and pets. Since the Easter Egger is a mutt bird anyway I was wondering what you guys think of this guy. He is just over 4 months still filling out, and I think very pretty with full cheeks and beard, and a quirky little personality. He follows me around (sucker) I am getting attached to this guy but to keep him he needs to be a stud muffin! Since the Easter Egger is not really purebred do you think I could save him for my Easter Eggers hens and put him to work? I hope the pictures are helpful.
