    I got this rooster as a chick. He was labeled as a rare/exotic chick and I really like him. He is really sweet but I just want to know what breed he is so I could get him some ladies like him

    Your handsome boy is an Easter Egger or what hatcheries call an Ameraucana.

    if by "rare" they mean "not rare", then this is an easter egger. but if by "rare" they mean "uncooked" then they are right! he certainly is a HUNK of meat too! LOL. he's a handsome fellow, but not anything super duper special or exotic. sorry! [​IMG] <3 but he is cute.

    haha ok. Thanks everyone. It is nice to know even if he is just a common bird. I sure do like him, probably more than he likes me [​IMG]
