    I got these when they were about 8 months old from someone. Can anyone tell me which breed is the grey/blue rooster (one in the front) is. He is an amazing rooster, never fights with other roosters, very well behaved, friendly and well mannered. Does anyone own this specific breed and has the same experience with them?

    The one in the back with the large crown is not friendly with other roosters only when confined. He bullies them and also crows a lot. Which breed is that one btw?

    I just wanted to say he is a very pretty fellow! Yes I also think it might be an easter egger We had one that looked almost exactly like him and would even let me hold him! (Ours was an easter egger.)

    By looking at the beard he's probably an americuana. Did he hatch from a blue egg?

    With the gold and red leakage in the hackles and that comb he is a handsome Easter Egger

    Americuana or EE... mine looks like him just lighter colors and different style comb but his beard gives him away.

    Your favorite: huge muffs and blue tends to equal Amercauna, faverolle or Easter Egger. Since his feet don't look feathered, he's not a faverolle, and the reason Ameracauna isn't in consideration is because they're supposed to be solid colored. Easter egger can also mean Ameracauna cross though, and that would explain the legs and very tufted face--none of my EEs ever had muffs that nice.

    Your boy in back: a very nice (copper and blue?) maran. I could be wrong, never having actually owned any of those, but he bears a strong resemblance to those shown at the local fair.

    The bird in back appears to be lightly bearded (suppressing wattle size) and is also likely of ee breeding/an Ameraucana cross. Both are striking boys

    Both are most likely from an Olive Egger project using Easter Eggers and Marans, with their single combs and sparse feathers on the legs.
    Gorgeous boys.
