    Hello all! Someone wants to give me this little fella and is claiming he is a SQ ameraucana roo (bantam). I KNOW it is difficult to actually find a real ameraucana and not an easter egger. What do you guys think? I'll take him regardless (cause he needs a home and I'm a softie!) but I always like to know what I have running around!

    It's a roo for sure. What breed I don't know. Some kind of OEG possibly Beautiful

    Looks like an Easter Egger-Old English Game hybrid to me. [​IMG]

    Your going to have to post better pic's What type of comb.
    I don't know if there is a Golden Duckwing is a standard variety.

    Did they call him a Ameraucana or American (as in American Game Bantam)

    Nope they call him an ameraucana. I didn't think he really looked like one, but I'm no expert!! Thanks ya'll!

    Its definately not what they claimed other than bantam rooster . I can't tell enough from the pic to try to figure if its EE or not , and know next nothing about gamefowl . However , that said , he does show some game influence to me ; but we raised semi-feral , mixed blood bantams that became as gamey or more so through natural selection as he looks to me . Good luck with him .
