    He was sold to me as an Ameraucanas, I don't think so. EE would be great, but he looks like a game rooster to me. What do you think? A friend with a farms will take him if he's not at least an EE.

    Thanks for any and all help

    He does. He is beautiful and a good lead rooster, but I've got a lot of money in my hens. Thanks

    Yep, he is a cross bred rooster with game blood in his background. It would be a shame to cross him on Ameraucana hens.....

    Yea, my thoughts also. I don't know if you can tell, but his legs are green. That was the biguest reason I asked. Thanks

    He may have been produced by crossing an Ameraucana with a game fowl, but he is an Easter Egger rooster. The greenish legs are a dead giveaway.

    Looks like a gamebird mix.
