    I bought what I thought was a Blue Wheaton pullet and 2 roosters. Well the pullet looks more like a rooster and just started crowing. Any idea what breed it actually is? It's the one on the left . [​IMG]

    Definitely a cockerel, and I would say he's probably a splash wheaten ameraucana.

    I'm leaning toward Easter Egger, but I've never seen a Splash Wheaten Ameraucana before, so he may be one of those.

    I suspect that's what that cockerel up there is since the OP said the birds are all supposed to be blue wheaten ameraucanas, and you get splashes like this when breeding the blues.

    What would I get if I breed him back to a blue Wheaton hen?

    50% would be splash wheaten, 50% would be blue wheaten. If bred to Wheaten, you would get 100% Blue Wheaten.
