    Can't remember where we got him but he's very protective. [​IMG]

    Easiest thing would be to call him an Easter egger. I can't see the comb really well, but it's not straight.

    Looks like a crossbreed, probably and Easter Egger.

    Actually he looks like he might be a really poor quality Blue Laced Splash Wyandotte. Does he have any lacing on his chest?

    It has a pea comb.

    I agree would be just easiest to call him an EE and be done with it. He does look like he could be EE crossed with some dual purpose breed. With the body that short and wide would be tempted to guess wyandotte but they have rose combs so in theory he should have a walnut comb-it's a genetic combination of pea and rose and looks like a big fat shapeless lump. Could be almost any dual purpose breed though.. most likely one that is solid black.

    Thanks all. I guess i should research the different combs as I have NO idea what to look for.
