    The rooster pictured in my Avatar was our very loved Roo. We lost him just yesterday to a predator who just left him in our yard (we suspect fisher cat). We are very upset by this. We raised him from a day old chick and he was our only rooster. He was lively and beautiful and ruled the roost. I would love to know what his coloration was considered? He was supposed to be an Aracauna but since they are supposed to lack tails I suspected Ameracauna but don't really know too much about it. Eventually we will get another. But only when we find the right one and I would like the same breed. He was just such a fun roo.

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    My Loddie Da, My first rooster, was a Easter egger also.

    I think he was a Easter egger or a non-standard bred color Ameraucana

    Do you have any pics of his side, so I can see the body color better?

    The aren't names for EE colors- because there is no standard.

    Quote:True, but she can at least ask around if anyone has a EE roo that is _______ in color?

    & the color that comes nearest to what he was is "Red pyle."

    Oh wow, I'm so sorry for your loss. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] He was beautiful and the same color as one of my EE hens. She's got that same coloring and chest feathers. Here's a pict when she was much younger:

    She had her tail picked by the other chickens, hence the purple. Since then, it's grown back and she's lovely.
