    He was sold to me as an Ameracana but i'm not really familiar with either breeds... sorry for the crap photo. He's about 5 months old.

    Looks like an EE to me (EE's are mixes that lay green eggs rather than an actual breed).

    He is quite beautiful. He looks like he could maybe be an Americana and black copper Maran mix. A lot of people that I know call them olive eggers.
