Is this a Euskal?

Sorry, I wasn't sure the best place to put this question and picture!
I got some day-old Euskals back in March and one of them looks quite different from the rest. Is he even a Euskal? He looked the same at first but it didn't take long for his beak to look different and once they feathered the colour difference was quite noticeable of course... I'm thinking he/she is a mixup but I'd love to be wrong.

Re: Is this a Euskal?

looks like an Ameraucana or Easter egger to me, definitely not Euskal Oiloa.  Maybe a Wheaten Ameraucana cockerel?

I agree gubi, Easter egger (and I think a cockerel) but definately not an EO.

that's what we thought, darn. The farm he came from also raises Wheaten Ameraucanas so that's probably what he is.

I was going to say "he" looks like a Wheaten Ameraucana.  I raised them for a bout a year.

Hi Sheila, Yes not an EO as the others have said. I see that you are from BC is that where you purchased your EO? The breeder may want to know about this in case they are selling to anyone else. It will be interesting to see how he turns out.

Re: Is this a Euskal?

I'm no expert by any means, but it does not look like Euskal. Nice interesting colors though...
