This cockerel is primarily blue with some lighter coloring around the neck area, I know blue varies but is he considered a true blue or what color is he? His DOB is around 6/10/09 so he is about 4 months old now, pics taken today 10/9/09.

i used to have ameraucanas and they look funny and not right until they hit adulthood!!! i always thought mine looked funny but their parents were just beautiful! give him time he might be an ugly duckling that turns into a swan!

Thanks! You guys are great!!!

I guess it is better not to show him yet then??? the deadline is tomorrow, perhaps he will be ready for the spring show. What do you think?

I have these two beautiful pullets that would be great for him then!!! a black and a blue pictured below, but their color is solid already so that is what puzzled me.

pullets dont have that awkward look cockerels do and if you want to show him go for it i bet the judge will have a knowledge of ameraucanas and they might know this little ameraucana fun fact!! lol

Decisions decisions...what to do??? What would you do???

It is between him and my 7 yr old SSH Hen and a young black polish I am not sure if it is a girl or boy????

I only have a few hours to go to the PO and make the deadline!!!

unless we are trying to produce a perfect flock why not let him live and be happy? I have many birds that are not show quality including 5 EE and I love them just the same. Maybe I am not understanding something.
