    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?[​IMG]

    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.

    He's silver base color with the Columbian pattern. He is an Easter Egger.

    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.
