    I was wondering if anyone could help with the color of this guy (from my avatar):

    He was sold to us as BBS Ameraucana (as his hatch-mates indeed were). Has slate legs and pea comb, but no muffs or beard and has white earlobes. He is obviously an 'oops', but is extraordinarily nice with the kids so we'll keep him around. I've just been curious about his color. He looks blue, but has white on his head, wing bow and lacing on his breast.

    Since he's mixed, he's not any "color". I agree he's quite striking, I would love to have a pretty blue based EE roo like him for my mixed breed flock--I'll bet he will make such pretty babies.
