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! This year we have Cabbage Jack over the girls (Pigeon, Rose, Penny, Magpie, Lovey, Lavender and Lemons). We have three lovely pullets from this year's hatch also!

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!

In 2022 we will be working hard to increase genetic diversity in our little flock. We will be introducing some black split to lavender birds from Itty Bitty Farm (thank you Barb!). We will also be using a lavender cuckoo d'Anvers boy to introduce the cuckoo gene along with another line of genetic diversity, so stay tuned!

Here are some of our lovely 2020 growouts!
