ameraucana rooster??

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

I ordered 4 ameraucana chicks. All of them look normal except one. It has a lot of grey and blue on it. I'm starting to think its a rooster, but I dont know what an aneraucana rooster looks like.  Can anyone tell me or show me what an ameraucana rooster looks like?

Thanks in advance,

Are they real ameraucanas or are they hatchery easter eggers?

Easter eggers are mixed breeds so they can look like almost anything. If it is a roo it should have more pronounced 3 ridged peacomb on its head.

How old are they?

What colour did you order from the breeder? Or what colours does the breeder work with?
