    Or more accurately, guess this rooster!
    Hi, I'm Ruth. I picked this guy up today off a craigslist orlando post.
    He was id as an ameraucana.
    Could you venture a guess as to if this is correct and what color type is he?

    Those legs really are blue. Not blue green. That seems to be a green reflection from the carpet.

    and the link if the pic doesn't work.

    I think he is a very pretty easter egger. And saying "guess this chicken" works for a hen or a roo.

    I would say EE of the white black tailed variety...dount that the color is even remotely correct but I am putting my 2 cents in!

    He is beautiful! I would say EE Roo but be careful integrating into the flock. I was just reading a post on here where someone luckily quarantined a new roo and found out during quarantine that he had a serious disease he would have spread to the flock.
    Welcome to BYC. It is a great place.
    Congratulations! He is very handsome!

    I guess I blew the quarantine thing. And I should know better.
    He came from a good looking flock and had normal poos.
    He's with his flock of 2 girls already.
