Wheaten Ameracauna and Blue Wheaten Ameracuana

I raise wheaten and blue wheaten Ameraucana. The breed standard from the Ameraucana Breeders Club is here. http://www.ameraucana.org/standard.html

I am very proud of the rich turquoise colored eggs I get from my Wheatens. Maintaining this color has proven to be a challenge when adding new blood lines however.

Wheaten chicks hatch out sort of a cream color. As they mature, the hens stay cream colored and the boys get darker and darker. Blue wheaten males will get a blue chest, wheaten males get a black chest. Wing color starts changing around 3-4 weeks old, this helps us sex them early.


I get a LOT of inquiries from people wanting these eggs and birds. I don't keep a waiting list, since most people not ready when the eggs are available ... keeping track of peoples requests requires more time than I'm interested in spending.
...... So availability is based on first come first serve.
