    He is not a barred rock, ameraucana, or araucana. Barred rocks are barred, araucanas are rumpless, have a pea comb, and ear tufts, ameraucanas have muffs and a beard and come in 8 certain colors you can learn about them here www.ameracuana.org He looks to be an easter egger (beardless)

    Not all Araucanas have tufts, some are clean faced.

    Not any of the choices you've listed, or barred rock. He's a barnyard mix. I don't see anything especially Easter Egger about him, just a mixed breed cute little guy.

    Here is another pic. A coyote attacked his coop when he was a chick and killed all but him. So his owners gave him to us.
