This is Bernie. He is a drop dead gorgeous Ameraucana rooster. We got him as a chick in June 2023. He was bread with Isabel Wheaton Ameraucana genes, although I don't really see Isabel or Wheaton in his coloring. Instead he is an amazing mix of browns, caramels, oranges, yellows, and iridescent green tail feathers. He is striking in the sun.
For temperament, he is kind and has not shown aggression -- even to our high energy dogs. He loves his hens regularly calling out and chatting with them and is ever vigilent for predators.
On top of it all, he is an ameraucana so he carries the ever coveted blue egg laying genes.
