    Here is a pic of a young cockrel from my backyard flock. Our rooster is an old english game bantam [​IMG] and our hens were buff Os, RIR and EE. Which mix do ya'll think he is? He's starting to be very cool looking, just curious.

    SEE MY SECOND POST BELOW FOR THE BETTER PIC, I REMOVED THIS ONE CAUSE SO BLURRY! [​IMG]

    He looks a lot like my EE roo... Are those puffy cheeks I see? If so, the EEs would be the only ones on your list that could produce them [​IMG] here's my boy... His cheeks are black and super puffy - really sticks out in person [​IMG]

    colors are the same, but your boy has the dark legs and a straight comb rather than a rose comb, which is what my guy has. Very handsome guy you've got!!

    I agree it's mom was an EE. Are his legs slate/green? It looks like it in the pic.

    Sorry forgot can't go by the leg color because lots of OEG's have dark legs. I still think OEG and EE mix though! It's the puffy cheeks!
