    I know there is a lot of specific terminology regarding chicken colors, but I am still relatively new to chickens and don't know this yet. I have a beautiful EE (hatchery called him an Araucana but I doubt it) rooster, I just don't know what color this would be called.

    I believe that this color pattern does not have a name. It is not similar to color patterns offered by any of the breeds standardized by the American Poultry Association.

    Might be considered Golden Duckwing, but there isn't really certain colours for Easter Eggers.
