    Was given this rooster a few days ago. He settled right in. He's nice to the hens and me:) Just wondering what breed or cross he is. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] He looks somewhat like an EE/Game cross.

    I was leaning towards a EE cross of some kind. Thanks for the input:)

    Looks like an Easter Egger or Easter Egger cross.

    I agree, he appears to be an Easter Egger cross. Pretty boy!

    Yeah most of mine are molting. He also had a two plus hour trip to my place. Some of his tail feathers got pretty rumpled in the carrier he was in. I had no idea what he was when I said I'd take him. They subscribed him as a red bird with green tail. He's got a great personality. Plus I love my EE and EE crosses

    Me too! Between barred birds and Easter eggers, I could just breed my own little mixed flock forever. The only chicks I plan to buy next spring will be some hatchery EE hens to bring more color back to my eggs, and I'm going to keep an eye out for someone's oops EE cockerel. They're just beautiful!

    Hi guys can anyone tell me what you think this hen might be ?
    I brought her last week as just a cross breed and I think she's just gorgeous :)
