    WOOOOW..... what color would you call his base color? Blue? I ask because I have a barred roo that is that color and I don't really know what that is, but it is pretty [​IMG]

    Yup, Blue.

    He somewhat resembles a Blue Wheaten.

    ETA: He's not Blue Wheaten though, there's some other genes in him too, partridge something mabye?

    Dad is a Lavender Ameracuana mom is an EE, so all sorts of stuff going on there. Yes we call his base color blue around here. He is Alpha, his brother Omega would stand for a picture today, he is very striking too.

    That's a weird "blue," - Tail appears black and has definite green sheen.

    I have 2 AMeraucana roosters split for lav. I hope they produce some grandkids as pretty as Alpha! [​IMG]

    My little barred roo is a lav split too. Maybe that has something to do with his color. Maybe not... he is going to be dinner either way.... feather picker, but he is pretty.

    My Dolly started laying! She has the prettiest green eggs. Also, she seems oddly pleased with herself. I know I'm probably guilty of a little anthropomorphism, but she really does seem so happy for me to get that egg each day. I'm thrilled anyway, so maybe it is just me. . .

    oh except my buff girl has yellow legs has anyone determined whether leg color has anything to do with egg color?
