    My new roo. So excited as he is just beautiful! (My very first roo!)

    I was told Ameraucana with EE colouring... sound about right?

    At any rate, I don't really care what he is, but he is just lovely.

    (He is seen here in his 'play pen' for now, starting the integration process. The play pen is in a secure barn (9ft X 18ft coop).

    He looks like an Easter Egger to me.

    Beautiful rooster! He looks like he is an Easter Egger (Ameraucanas only come in Black, Blue, Blue Wheaten, Brown Red, Buff, Silver, and Wheaten & White) I raise EE and your rooster looks much like mine:

    He found his lungs today when he figured out it was day time. :D Our barn is so very dark, and with the snow today, I have the doors closed. As soon as the doors opened and the lights came on, he started crowing as I started to give him he morning feed and fresh water. The dog looked at me as to say... um, mum, that chicken is making a strange sound. lol The hens don't seem to fussed by him as they were yesterday, so I am taking that as a good sign. I also noticed that if there is a ruffle of feathers and a squawk out of the ladies, he shows immediate interest at what is going on, vocally and visually.
