    I agree. The greenish legs are a dead giveaway. True Ameraucanas have slate blue legs.

    Thank you everyone. Now I have to look up that breed and see if it is a good one for breeding my hens I want to get. I hope to hatch my own eggs.

    PS as for his legs it is the lighting in the coop they aren't green but they are not slate blue either so I think you are right on the easter egger ty

    Leg color not withstanding - the other distinction that renders him an EE would be his coloration.
