    Does this color pattern on my Ameracauna rooster (Blonde, James Blonde) have a name? I am thinking Blue Wheaten, but it seems too blonde for that. Lemon Blue is the only other one that seems close. Carol in Minnesota

    Did you get it from a breeder or hatchery? It looks like an EE to me.

    Lemon blue, which is not a recognized color, would have yellow hackles and saddle feathers, no red.

    McMurray hatchery.

    What is the difference between EEs and Ameraucanas?

    You have an easter egger then. I'll let the Ameraucana police explain the difference to you. [​IMG]

    Thank you, Jean. That is good to know.

    So my little James is not an Ameraucana and does not have a nice name for his color pattern? He will be crushed. I will have to get creative and make something up.

    He is still an awesome looking bird!!!!!

    I started with easter eggers and they were lots of fun and good layers.
