    not an araucana as they are tail-less and come clean faced or with tuffs but never muffs like your boy has

    and with him having a single comb I doubt he carries the color egg gene, but I have read that a very few single combed ees do carry it

    Easter egger, and I agree the straight comb really lessens the chances of his female offspring laying colored eggs.
