Large fowl blue Ameracuanas are one of several color varieties of Ameraucana chickens recognized by the APA. Blue chickens are based on blacks, but with the black feathers diluted to blue by the blue gene (Bl). The feathers are a blue/gray color, but the eggs are true blue. Ideally each feather is laced with black. Cackle Hatchery® started offering blue Ameraucana day-old chicks in 2015. These are not “Easter Eggers“, nor are they “Araucana”…they are the real deal! We have a limited supply of this rare variety that was created by John W Blehm.
Breeding Note: Blue chickens do not breed true and our blue to blue matings produce approximately 50% blue chicks, 25% black chicks and 25% splash chicks. We will send as many blues as we can in your order, but please also expect some black and splash Ameraucana chicks in your order.
NOTE: Our sexors have a hard time determining the gender of the ameraucana and their vent sexing on this breed is about 80% accurate on the average and well below the normal average of 90% accurate on other breeds. Please take this into consideration when ordering females”
