    I was given him by my neighbor in trade for a rooster of mine that he wanted.....He didn't know the breed, but it came from one of his workers.....My first thought was way pretty EE but he doesn't strike me as just a plain EE. He has the big beard and yellow legs and very interesting color that I hadn't seen on an EE before (or americauna for that matter).
    Anyhow, any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I'd say EE and I'd say GORGEOUS!

    Not an Ameraucana for sure but he actually looks more like some kind of Game cock than an Easter Egger, I'm not sure if there is a bearded strain of gamefowl though but minus the beard, he looks just like a game cock.

    Legs are the wrong color for Ameraucana should be grey/slate.

    I second rareroo - he looks like some kind of game bird. Maybe an amer/game cross... but if so the only thing he got from his amer. side is the muff/beard!

    I think he's a very handsome Ameraucana, looks like a roo I had "Lil Evil".
