    Your rooster's color doesn't have an exact name-he can't be called blue, though he has some blue in him. It's also not blue wheaten. He isn't an Ameraucana, but a very handsome and unusual Easter Egger. I like this coloring very much-haven't seen many like him, if any. Where did you get him?

    I think feedstores have been selling easter eggers as ameraucanas for years. They are only partly ameraucana. I have a whole pen full of easter eggers that I purchased as ameraucana chicks.... [​IMG]
