I received this roo as a gift, and was told he is an Ameracuana. What color is he, and does he fit the Ameracuana type?

TIA

Hello! I am not really sure what breed he is but I had an Easter Egger rooster and he looked almost exactly like that. Easter Egger/Ameracuanas are not official breeds so they have no official colors. They can be any color.

Ameraucanas are actually a recognized breed and do have official APA recognized colors; black, blue, blue wheaten, brown red, buff, silver, wheaten , and white. Unfortunately hatcheries and feed stores frequently market their Easter Eggers as Ameraucanas when they are in fact hybrids.
