Unlike Easter Eggers that hatcheries often sell as Ameraucanas, these are the real deal. We love their fluffy cheeks, pea combs, and sky blue (sometimes minty) eggs! Our line is directly from APA Grand Master Exhibitor Paul Smith. To preserve feather quality, we breed our Self-Blue Ameraucanas (aka Lavender Ameraucanas) back to Black or Black Split Ameraucanas every few generations. Chicks during those years might be Self-Blue or Black carriers of the Self-Blue gene. For early 2023, ALL chicks will be Black carriers of Self-Blue.
Ameraucanas lay on average 200 medium sky blue (sometimes greenish) eggs per year.
Ameraucana hens weigh about 5lbs and roosters about 6lbs.
Ameraucanas are exceptionally cold hardy! Their peacombs are perfect for our Wisconsin weather.
If you're looking for a sweet bird that just wants to be loved, the Ameraucana would be perfect! They are all so incredibly mellow and love to cuddle. They're happy free ranging or locked in runs.
