    I messed up and posted this in the wrong section. Anyways, is this an EE or Americauna?

    Was referencing this website, http://www.ameraucana.org/scrapbook.html
    and he matches up pretty closely with 2 of the different colored males.

    I agree with you, he does look like either a Wheaten or Brown Red Ameraucana. Though it is possible that he could just be a well-colored EE.

    He wouldn't be a brown red as he has the brown flights, which brown reds don't have. I don't think he is a wheaten either since his chest seems to have a little red lacing on it and wheatens shouldn't. Where did you get him from?

    Looks like an Easter Egger to me.

    He has very good type, but color does not really fit any of the Ameraucana varieties - I'll say he is an EE.

    I see what you mean about the lacing. Dang. LOL. He does have a little bit of it on the chest. I got him from Tractor Supply in Asheboro, NC. I knew that these were most likely eggers, but he is soooooo close to that wheaten. I'll keep him around anyways.



    His name suits his look... KKKhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaan!!

    Ya, definatley an easter egger. With the closer picture and a little background info he is an EE. Plus his legs look like they have a green tint to them
