    His comb is not exactly pea or exactly straight. Ameraucanas and Arcaunas should have pea combs. Arcaunas should be rumpless with ear tufts, a little on each side where Ameraucanas have full beards. If his breed lay olive eggs, they would be "Olive Eggers" which is usually an Ameraucana mixed with a dark egg layer. I hope this helps.

    He is not a purebred bird, rather a mixed breed often called an"easter egger" (EE) for the various color eggs they lay.
