Blue + Splash Ameraucana

The Ameraucana is often confused with the Easter Egger (which is sometimes spelled Americana), but AMERAUCANA is a true breed. They are a hardy, thrifty bird, with great foraging skills and are alert. Their best known characteristic is their bearded faces and tiny pea combs, which make them very winter-hardy as they aren't prone to frost-bite. They should also have slate colored legs, free of feathering. Friendly if handled from chicks. 

Even if not handled, they tend to be very calm once caught.

They lay blue eggs. Eggs from certain hens can have a greenish tint but I only hatch the bluest eggs and don't keep hens who lay green tinted eggs. Chicks are sold straight run for color.

Chicks will be either blue or splash for 2020. 

Note: BBS stands for Black/Blue/Splash. These are the 3 different colors of the single line.

Black is the base color, but the blues carry a dilute gene, and splash carry 2 copies of the dilute gene. The splash will appear white with blue or black flecks.

Black x Black = 100% black chicks.

Black x Blue = 50% black, 50% blue chicks

Black x Splash = 100% blue chicks

Blue x Blue - 50% blue, 25% black, 25% splash

Blue x Splash = 50% blue, 50% splash

Splash x Splash = 100% splash chicks
