    We were told he was Ameraucana and has a lot of their traits but not the coloring. Any thoughts??[​IMG]

    My easter-egger is the same color: black (metallic blue/green/purple) and tan (metallic gold). She lays lite blue eggs so I know she is at least half Auracana/Amercauna. I'll also try to get a photo of her posted for you to see. Mine clucks more like a duck than a chicken, that's another trait to look for.

    Auracana and easter eggers usually the only breeds with faces like that.

    So it could be one of those, or one of those mixed with a golden lace.

    I think it is some mix with gold laced Wyandotte or maybe poor hatchery bred - theirs don't usually have major breed characteristics.
