He is an easter-egger rooster, and I think he probably has a pea comb, but I've never seen one like this. Just curious. Thanks!

I don't think he's an EE at all. He looks like a mixed breed rooster with silkie back in the gene pool somewhere.

Wow, cool! We bought him online from a private seller, and he said they were easter eggers. But he also said they were hens and "laying every day" (it took months for the ones that were hens to start laying
). Thanks!

The color is called Silver Duckwing, ...however there is also something presenting
like a heterozygous Columbian gene (Co/co), See the striping in the hackle?
In a pure Silver Duckwing (e+/e+ S/S ) the hackle would be snow white. Very pretty boy!
Best,
Karen
