    Just wondering what color this roo of mine would be considered. Also, I believe he is an Ameraucana---am I correct?[​IMG] Sorry the pic. is so small, I've tried everything, and can't get them to upload any bigger![​IMG]

    Whatever the color is called, it's pretty. Can't see his head well enough to tell about comb or muffs, but his body shape isn't quite right for an ameraucana.

    I saw somewhere on BYC how to upload pics so that we could just click on them and they would magnify. But I have the paws of a dinosaur so I can't tell you myself! [​IMG]

    Doesn't look like an Ameraucana, but maybe and Easter Egger. Hard to tell from the picture.

    Pretty guy- I have no idea as to breed.

    For the pic- When uploading, after you select a pic, check the box that gives you the re-size option, then choose the largest option, the one for websites and forum postings, I think. Its the last one that drops down on the list. You have to do that for every picture you upload, you have to choose a size if you dont want it small. Hope this helped with the pic thing, [​IMG]

    From that tiny picture EE..I'm assuming he's got a beard behind the brush. Ameraucana's have a strict breed standard with only 7 colors allowed..yours isn't one of them. If you want to know more about the APA Breed Standard for a true Ameraucana their web site is www.Ameraucana.org
    EE's are a beautiful fun chicken to have in about any flock...even though we breed Ameraucana's we have some EE's here as well [​IMG]

    I tried that a few times-----no luck.[​IMG] I don't understand it, because the pictures turned out great on facebook.[​IMG]
