Is Crinkle an Americana? I was told he is but I'm not sure. Thanks for the help.
looks like he is an easter egger
Quote:Hmmmm...oh well....I still love him so Happy Easter to me !!!
Americana is another name for easter egger so yes he is an Americana. Now if you are asking if he is an Ameraucana, then no. He is a very handsome roo though!
Quote:Thank you that clears up a lot. He's a big baby. lol
I had an EE roo who looked much like that, really beautiful, but he was MEAN to his girls. Wish he had been a nice one like yours!
Mine was sold as an Ameraucana at the feed store because that is what the hatchery (Ideal) called them -- but I knew he was an EE. If you're really interested, the explanation is on here, but it's a long one.
Looks a lot like my BuffOrp-X-Ameraucana aka Easter Eggers:
Quote:Even then what you said can really confuse a lot of people.
Technically he is NOT an Ameraucana. Americana is just a misspelling created by hatcheries, but still a false name.
He's an Easter Egger. An Ameraucana has to meet a standard of perfection to be called one. An easter egger is basically an ameraucana cross breed or nonstandard colored ameraucana. He's very handsome though.
He is very handsome!
