    I found this picture online, this is not my bird. I just thought his colors were cool looking. He`s an Araucana I think it said.

    Not an Araucana, not an Ameraucana... perhaps an Easter Egger.

    But no doubt, gorgeous.

    I think he is probably mixed with a little polish or other tophat kind too since he seems to have a little crest . But he's a odd looking ( but pretty) fella!!

    The UK and AUS have crested araucanas. The rooster almost looks like a lavender silver, a silver with lavender replacing the black

    I agree that he looks like an Araucana from the UK or other foreign country.
