    I believe my rooster is an EE and not an Ameraucana but I wanted to know what you all thought.

    Yeah, I'm going to say EE. If he was an Ameraucana, his legs would be darker (more of a dark grey) and wouldn't have that greenish tint to them.

    You are correct--he is an Easter Egger, not an Ameraucana. Not only does he lack the dark slate legs of Ameraucanas, but he is also not one of the 8 recognized (by the American Poultry Association) varieties of Ameraucana. He's very handsome!

    You have a beautiful Easter Egger rooster. He'd have slate blue legs if he was an Ameraucana, and would be one of eight color patterns.
