    My favorite color [​IMG] mine is just so friendly. Hopefully The Ameraucana Police(pips&peeps) will be able to tell you. I haven't had them long enough to be able to assess them

    He looks to be young still. The beard and muff should turn blue in the next month or so. This color takes forever to mature.....

    Do you have a picture of the back of his neck and the fluff around his thighs?

    Who's line is he out of?

    He looks pretty good. You will want to make sure he does not get any red in the breast area and in future generations pick the roo with the least amount of striping in the hackles.
