Araucanas/Ameraucanas

This unusual breed gets in name from the Indian tribe of Chilie where they were first discovered.  Our chicks have some Araucana and some Ameraucana breeding mixed and consequently are not for show but are beautiful chickens known for their ability to lay colored eggs of shades varying from turquoise to blue.  Each bird will typically lay a different shade of colored egg that will amaze your friends and make a wonderful "show and tell" type project for school.  Adults are of medium size with pea combs and our breeding stock are selected for their ability to produce colored eggs.  They exhibit a wonderful combination of colors and color patterns and 10 or 20 of these birds will make an absolutely beautiful laying flock that is extremely hardy and will be the talk of the town.  Baby chicks come in all colors, plain and fancy, just like the adults.  This is a unique breed and great fun to have when the colored eggs start coming.  Our chicks are recommended for egg laying color and ability, not for exhibition.
