What color would you call the bird? [/img]
It looks like a blue ameraucana, it could be an easter egger.
It's not a real great representation of blue though. I also think it is a cockerel, just by looking at how the tail feathers are starting to curl downward.
A pretty blue
I'm wondering about the cockerel post. Here's some head shots of two birds, What do you think? [/img] ameraucana_splash_head.jpg[/img][/img]
Well, may be it is a pullet. Just keep an eye on it.
The second picture is definately a splash ameraucana cockerel.
Your blue probably came from a blue on blue mating and that is probably why I don't like the color.
I have been selling eggs from that particular breeding and so have others on eggbid as many people have requested splash, but I don't keep any of the blue offspring myself as I prefer the darker ones with lacing which is the standard.
Are they from my lines? Or from one of the other gals on eggbid?
blue id say hen
I bought them in southern Ohio and don't know a thing about them.
Look like hens to me.
the splash looks like a definite roo to me but the blue could be a roo too, the one i have doesnt have the tail curl that yours seems to have
very pretty birds, I love that splash roo
