    I am definitely no expert, but to me he looks like a lavender orpington. If you search lavender orpingtons you will see that they look just like your boy. He is very handsome!

    Thank you both very much! I also have a hen that is like "Pop" the Rooster.. I have a Buff Orpington hen and I do see the similarity. These 2 were supposed to be Ameraucana but I am not disappointed. The others are definitely Ameraucana. I got them when they were 2 week old chicks. I guess the Lavender Orpingtons got mixed in by mistake. They are much bigger than the Ameraucanas. Well, they are actually bigger than any of the flock.

    Thank you all! Yes, he s a beautiful bird. the pictures don't really do justice. This is the Hen (Lolly)! she is most likely "Pop's" sister.
