Blue Ameraucana Eggs: from our Black, Blue, Splash Breeding Pen 2017
In 2022 we combined our white Ameraucana chickens with our blue and splash Ameraucana chickens. Our current breeding pen consists of splash, white and blue Ameraucana hens and roosters. The white Ameraucana chickens laid the largest blue egg. We are no longer breeding black or Wheaten/Blue Wheaten Ameraucana chickens.
Ameraucana chickens are layers and will not grow as fast as dual-purpose breeds. We have been breeding Ameraucana chickens since 2013. Our stock is a combination of six unrelated lines from AB, BC and SK. In 2017 we added a new line of blue, black and splash to our existing BBS Ameraucana stock. We also brought in our white Ameraucana and we added new stock to our Wheaten/Blue Wheaten line for our ongoing breeding program.
We love the muffs, personalities, grey/blue slate legs and blue eggs of this breed. Our Ameraucana stock has slowly improved from one generation to the next and so has our hens egg size. Most of them now lay large size eggs. We always chose the best blue eggs to incubate or ship.
Currently, the APA recognizes colour varieties in black, blue, blue wheaten, brow-red, buff, silver, wheaten, and white. The Ameraucana was developed in the United States in the 1970’s from Araucana chickens brought in from Chile. Ameraucana traits include full tails, muffs, beards, and slate or black legs depending on the variety. They have pea combs and lay blue shelled eggs. They are easy keepers, alert foragers and nice layers of about 250 blue eggs a year. Ameraucana breeders find that these birds do well in our extreme Canadian winters due to their hardiness and pea combs.
