the ameraucana bantams.

Our wonderful bantam Ameraucana, a breed that tends to be intelligent, great foragers, and lays blue eggs! We are working with self blues, also called lavenders. They are amazingly friendly, ignoring treats for a chance to sit on my shoulder and visit! Curious and sweet, these birds will do almost anything to hang out with people. Quickly becoming favorites around here, we are enjoying life with these new additions! Cabbage Jack is a sweet, caring fellow who makes nests for his ladies (Lemons, Patches, McDade, Lavender) every day! This crew is maturing into a lovely flock, and starting to lay gorgeous blue eggs!

Right now no birds are available - all grow outs are being raised for a show in November where we hope that the self blue/lavender color will be accepted as an official color for Ameraucana bantams!

Here is a little future project! Artimus is a large fowl lavender cuckoo. If my bantam boys can fertilize her, I'm hoping to move the cuckoo color into the bantams!

Here are some of our lovely 2020 growouts!

 Sweet Patches loves to sit on my knee in cold weather.

 George and Jack are not fond of cold weather either!

George won second in the self blue variety at the Ohio National Show!
