We have been very fortunate to have acquired this beautiful line of standard Blue Ameraucana fowl from proven stock. A blue chicken that lays a blue egg. How perfect! These lovely birds are excellent layers with gentle dispositions and sport beards, muffs and a tail. Their small pea combs make them a fine choice for Northern and Southern poultry fanciers. Ameraucana were admitted to the APA standard in 1984. Mature males average 6 1/2 lbs while females average 5 1/2 lbs. They are a dual purpose fowl and would be a lovely additional to any breeding program. These are not your hybrid easter egger chickens.These are pure Ameracauna and the difference in appearance and quality is unmistakable.
THE COLOR BLUE: An interesting genetic characteristic of the Blue Ameraucana, is the return in the descendants of not only all blue chicks, but also the black, white, and black-white colors used in the earliest matings many generations ago to create these blue fowl. All of these chicks carry the blue genes and when mated black to white (splash) or with other blues, in turn produce numerous blue progeny. Approximately 50% of the baby chicks will be all blue. The other 50% will be black, white, and black/white combinations (splash).
Please Note: eggs received from this breed could be many different shades of blue, including minty blue or greenish blue.
Tip: Selectively breeding the black chickens to the white (splash) chickens will produce only blue chicks.
