    Where did you get him from? He's definitely not an araucana. They have no tails and ear tuffs. With the exception of breeders, places that sell araucans or amerecaunas, are actually selling Easter eggers. My best guess is that he's some kind of cross. He's pretty though.

    From the Farmer's Cooperative. He's very pretty but rather temperamental.

    I got this one as well. He (was supposed to be a she) actually looks like an Aracauna I think, has small sideburns, but does have long tail feathers. So I'm not sure what sex or breed. The Rhode Island Reds (in the background) are a given.

    First one could be a columbian rock but I don't think it is, most likely a mix.

    I think you are right....they are mongrels. LOL I've looked at a lot of pics on the internet and I see both coloration types amongst the "Easter Eggers". I'm getting light green eggs and brown ones from the RIR. Ah well. ....Just as long as I get the eggs right?

    Your flock is pretty. How can you not love those beautiful birds?! Here's a clean-faced Aracauna with similar coloring to yours. They're gorgeous birds. Once you see a rumpless bird, you look at birds differently. Their stature is different, their gait, they're good fliers. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yes I see the difference. I do love my flock. Muts or not they are really neat. The white cockerel is a challenge though. He is very territorial even with me. Everyone has told me to get rid of him, but I just can't.
