Erminette Ameraucanas have a rare and stunning color pattern consisting of solid white plumage scattered with solid black feathers. This pattern results from a single dominant white gene modified by genes that control how much black leaks through. The classic erminette pattern is about 85% white, with the rest consisting of an even sprinkling of black feathers.

When mating erminette to erminette, the chicks will be approximately 50% erminette. Half of the remainder will be solid white and the other half solid black.

Each Cackle Hatchery® order for erminette Ameraucanas will include some chicks with the erminette pattern, some black chicks, and some white chicks. All chicks will have the erminette gene.

As non broodies, erminette Ameraucana hens are reliable layers of large eggs. They lay as many as 200 eggs per year in varying shades of blue to blue-green.

Like other Ameraucanas, the erminette variety has a pea comb, beard and muffs. Also like other Ameraucanas, this variety has a genetic predisposition to scissor beak or cross beak, which affects approximately 1 out of 100 chicks.

Erminette Ameraucanas are docile and friendly. In addition to their striking appearance, this trait makes them especially wonderful as backyard pets.
