    We received this rooster a few months ago. Love him to pieces. They told me Ameraucana mix, but not sure of accuracy. Does he look like anything in particular? He had a prettier tail, but a neighbors dog attacked my flock and pulled out his tail. It's growing back though nicely! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Certainly looks like an accurate description of his breeding -- the small wattles would be due to the bearding in his background genetics. He could be described as an "Easter Egger" or stick with Ameraucana mix. Nice looking boy
