    They can have all different kinds of legs, they are really a crossbreed, they can have single combs or pea combs. I say ee because yours has the fluffy cheeks. Looks very much like what you can expect to get from hatcheries as ameraucanas.

    No he's not an Ameraucana..he doesn't come close to any of the accepted colors..www.ameraucana.org if you don't have pure Ameraucana's and only want colored eggs he will work just fine for you(provided he got the green genes) I would personally try and find a few EE ladies to have with him.
    In the pics it looks like he has green legs as well.
