    Mixed breed cockerel. May have Easter Egger in him, but it's hard to say for sure. Definitely not an Ameraucana, though.

    There are so many misinterpretations of the name Ameracauna. Your pic is of what could be a young Wheaten cockerel, but, as I am by far no where near an expert in what constitutes a specific breed of chicken, you would be better off digging around the available research on Ameracaunas.

    The breed standards are :
    • Peacomb
    • Muffs and beard
    • Red earlobes
    • Tail
    • Blue legs
    • White foot bottoms
    • Always lay blue eggs
    They come in eight distinct colors including, Blue, Black, White and Wheaten, which all share these distinct Ameraucana traits:


    So, I vote no based on the pic.
