    Are his legs green?

    I'm pretty sure he isn't a purebred Ameraucana, I don't know how the roosters of all the 8 colors look, but he's not one of the colors I know about. You can check the ABC breeders club website to see for yourself.

    He could be an Easter Egger, though, which is just an Ameraucana mixed breed who isn't one of the 8 recognized colors.

    I'm not sure his comb is the typical EE comb, it looks a little larger.

    He is an EE mix. Wrong comb for an Ameraucana and has no white in his beard.
