    What color is he???? He is white with black markings, a white chest, and a TINY bit of brownish-red color all over his body.

    He's a very cute Easter Egger actually. They don't come in standard colors.

    I agree, he's a Easter egger not a pure Ameraucana. I love him and have a hen that looks just like him.

    There are no pure Ameraucanas at any feed store or hatchery at the present time. Doubt there will ever be.

    Here is one very much like yours. Mine was sired by my Delaware rooster with my Easter Egger hen, June.

    Quote:They do that. Even hatcheries will tell you up and down they sell purebreds, but, they don't.


    As I answered in your other post, he's a duckwing with columbian. [​IMG] He'll grow to be a very pretty rooster, I had one a lot like him once.

    I have only ever seen purebred Ameraucanas once. EEs are always sold as Ameraucanas... any "Ameraucana" that has more than one color is an Easter Egger.
