Ameraucana color question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know that to be an Ameraucana they need to have certain traits as well as colors. My male came from a group a friend hatched, and I was curious if he's considered a red-black (poorly selected?) or would fall under the ee category.

His color is off for a Brown Red or Wheaten, so technically he automatically is considered an EE by most, although may be 100% Ameraucana...but indeed poorly marked and not SOP so nothing to breed forward.

I agree.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
