    I use to think he was an Aruacana but now I know a bit more I am guessing not with those wattles. Would he be classed as an EE?

    Maybe Ameraucana since he has tail and I don't see any Tufts. Or EE

    x2 Lavender Ameraucana. He conforms near perfectly to the British Standard. But not the American Poultry Association Standard.

    Thank you everyone. I've done some more research and think here in Australia we call your version of Amerucana -> Aruacanas which is what I was told he was when I bought him. Either way I guess I can rule out the EE thought :)
