Does anyone know what colour my Araucana rooster would be??
The color I think is Blue Wheaten..
Blue red or wheaten.. Probably a wheaten since the red is so light, but that may be just the flash from the camera?
His upper bode is organy- rusty- red ... if that's a colour???
How red does it have to be, to be considered red.
What is the definition of wheaten colour?
Yep, looks blue wheaten to me. Pretty guy!

Main thing to remember- Wheaten orange-lightish red. BBreds can get lightish red but there are still differences, and i believe they should be a dark deep "wine" red without the lemon hackle (yellowish tint at the bottom of the hackle) but have seen people do fine with both.
The color on wheatens remind me of pumpkins Both the red and the yellowy-orange colors are just so pretty!
We've been calling them blue reds here. I guess they do fit blue wheaton pretty well. Very pretty!
where did you get him do you have pure araucanas ? i live in NS i have been looking for some
Thanks so much for the information!!!
Well from the descriptions you have all given, I think he is more wheaten than red.
I love the pumpkin description- LOL
call ducks- I got him in Hampton NB. Yes he is pure Araucana. I have two roos and 5 hens. I tried breeding them this year and managed 2 chicks.... sigh... I will try again in the spring.
I know there is a lady on the Island that has some on occasion.
I'll send you a PM with contact info.
You guys are great!
