He is a splash Jim ,but I think has something else in his makeup . Guessing only a young bird and therefore needs to fill out . Is he standard or bantam? Can't see his legs for colour etc so can not comment . He is lacking beard but again may still be young . Lanky in overall look ,should be stocky and thicker through the neck . It depends what you want to do with him . A good indication of birds other than Araucana in makeup is egg colouring . I would suspect he came from egg with green ting rather than blue.

His 2 brothers both have beards and brows and are a lot fatter in the neck. One almost has his eyes and beak hidden behind fluff.
They all came from blue eggs.
I have given this fellow away since I/we have had a good look at him.
Will try and find a pic of the others.
