    He's not either a Brown Red nor Wheaten...and doesn't fit the other colors...not even the Blue Wheaten...which means he is miscolored for an Ameraucana.and therefore an Easter Egger as the standards are pretty strict for Ameraucanas.

    You can see the standard accepted colors here:

    Sorry....

    But if you like him and he produces what you want, that's all that matters.

    Your cockerel is an Easter Egger which does not conform to an Ameraucana colored standard.

    He is a handsome Easter Egger rooster, which means he doesn't really fit any standard color.
