    That's an Easter Egger cockerel. EEs are mutts and have no varieties.

    Looks like your response did come through finally!

    Yep, EEs, not Ameraucana. The vast majority of hatcheries still sell them under the misnomer of Ameraucanas or Araucanas, while in reality true Amerauanas and Araucanas are rather rare and can cost some serious cash.

    I'm only seeing two photos here, sorry. The first is the reddish Easter Easter cockerel and the second is the grayish EE pullet. If there are other photos you might want to try uploading them again.
