    I have been trying to figure out what kind of color my EE roo is. He is black and white with a little bit of brownish-red.

    He isn't a "standard" color. There is no standard colors for EE's since they are mixed breeds. He is a pretty color though. [​IMG]

    The person at the place I got them from said they were Amerucanas.

    He's not a standard color, however if you want to know genetically what he is, he's likely a Golden Duckwing with Columbian genes. (basically he's a duckwing but with both silver and gold genes, and the Columbian reverses the black vs white ratio, so instead of a black breast, he has a white one)



    ETA - It is VERY common for people to falsely sell Easter Eggers as Ameraucanas, sorry.

    The closest Ameraucana color that he would be would be splash with red/brown leakage.
