we have a Blue(what we think to be a EE roo)
is he at a good quality?
hes about 5 months old
Definately a blue EE roo!
I would give him some time to mature before I would show him or use him for breeding. He has alot of uneven blue hues thru his feathers but again, he is young.
At one year old, you would really have a good idea what he would be like.
Are you thinking that he is a true Americuna(sp) not an EE? who knows might be. EE's are not generally shown at APA events, though I have seen them win at country fairs.
What would you show him as? Easter Eggers aren't a standard breed & his leg colour is wrong for a Blue Ameraucana.
Judging "quality" in Easter Eggers is an eye of the beholder kind of thing-there are no established criteria.
to much yellow in the leg? might this be because of its age?
He would be good for 4H or local show fairs but not one of those APA sanct. shows.
he does look blue..
i love your signature "I dream of a better tomorrow where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned"
Quote:True Ameraucanas have white skin, and pinkish color on bottom of feet. No yellow should be envolved
Yellow skin is a recessive gene. Yellow of willow legs indicate yellow skin. Age has nothing to do with it.
Quote:And willow legs are wrong on an Ameraucana.
