the ameraucana bantams.

For information on this year's breeding plans, visit our 2022 Hatching Page.

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 darlings! 

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!) and blacks from Brad Stonebarger. We will also be using lavender cuckoo d'Anvers boys to introduce the cuckoo gene along with another line of genetic diversity, so stay tuned!

In November 2021 a dedicated group of breeders reached the culmination of years of work at the Ohio National Poultry Show and qualified for ABA acceptance. The color variety was officially accepted at the December 2021 ABA meeting. Now we will begin preparations for APA acceptance in 2024 or 2025.
