    He's most likely a poor quality Lavender Ameraucana (since they should lay blue eggs and he doesn't have much of a beard) or an Easter Egger.

    If he hatched from a green egg, he's an Easter Egger.

    Thank you.think I'm glad he's an easter egger from what I've read on them. Says they are friendlier breed and since I have kids and watch kids in my home and they free range, should work out for best.
