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 two small flocks - Cabbage Jack over the younger girls (Dove, Pigeon, Rose, Penny, Magpie, and Lovey) and Casper the friendly rooster over the older girls (Lavender and Lemons)

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!

A note about eggs: we will have some available, but these eggs are more delicate than d'Uccle eggs. They will hatch, but do not expect the hatch rate to match that of our prolific d'Uccles and d'Anvers!

Here are some of our lovely 2020 growouts!

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