Cackle Hatchery® has been breeding the lavender Ameraucana chicken since 2015. It is one of the most popular and sought after Ameraucana varieties. Yet the American Poultry Association does not recognize lavender as an Ameraucana color variety.

The large fowl lavender Ameraucana chicken was create by Master Breeder John W Blehm in 2005. Another term for the color lavender is self blue. The blue (Bl) color variety looks similar to lavender. But it does not breed true. The lavender gene (LAV) does breed true. A lavender chicken bred to a lavender chicken will produce only lavender chicks. However, the lavender variety has an associated feather quality issue. Often it causes frayed or tattered tails, especially on males.

For a list of the best blue egg layers visit Cackle Hatchery’s Best Blue Egg Layers Blog.

NOTE: Our sexers have a hard time determining the gender of the Ameraucana breed. As a result, their vent sexing on this breed averages about 80% accurate. The normal average is 90% accuracy for most other breeds. Please keep this in mind when ordering females.

As a breed, the Ameraucana has an inherent genetic beak issue. One out of 100 chicks may develop scissor beak/cross beak of varying degrees of severity. Scissor beak occurs when the top and bottom beak fail to align. It typically gets worse as the chick grows. Numerous articles on the internet provide more information on this subject.

Our lavender Ameraucanas are in limited supply. Order yours as early as late November for delivery in mid March to early August. You will love these baby chicks. They will grow up to lay beautiful blue eggs, and occasionally a light green egg, for your table.

  1. Rachel Manciocchi

    Chicks arrived in the nicest package, I even think there was a heat pack in there! Ordered these beauties in January and it was a long wait. I waited till may when the weather was a little nicer. I am so pleased with this purchase! Every bird I have received from here has been healthy and high quality. They even sent an extra, which was even more exciting. Beaks look good and healthy. Thank you!!

    I ordered 6 Lavender Ameracauna Pullets and 2 Lavender Ameracauna cockerels. I got 8 happy and healthy chicks. All arrived alive. They clearly marked the two male chicks so I could tell who was who.
    However one of my females developed crossbeak as 1/100 can. When I contacted Cackle Hatchery they said they would refund me right away! I am very happy with their customer service.
    I will be coming back for more chicks!

    I ordered 12 birds, but only received nine due to a short hatch. I requested two males, which I got, though one of them was not one of the birds that was marked as male. No harm no fowl. They are only four months old so I’m not sure how they will grow out, but right now I am loving them. They were gorgeous, fluffy, happy babies, and they are my social and gregarious birds. Some of the hens are shaping up a little nicer than others, but they all have lovely personalities.

  4. Bryan Peed

    ordered 14 straight run Lavenders. We got 15 and all were healthy and active. within a dat they were running around and super energetic. Still a little to young to sex, but it looks like we may only have 5 out of 15 that are roos. Cackle is the best hatchery we have dealt with hands down.

  5. gaschup

    What a mess. I ordered my Lavendar chicks in Dec 2020. You’d think they’d have my female chicks reserved. Nope! I got 5 of the 8 ordered straight run and some have cross beaks. I also ordered black Amer. chicks. Some of them have cross beaks, too. I won’t order from Cackle again. I’ve asked for a refund but it hasn’t been received yet, either. :-(((((((

      Looks like we did refund you by check on April 20th.

    We lost the chicken lottery

    We placed our order early January and we were so excited to get our birds . All 11 chickens ( ordered 9 ) arrived alive and happy . After about 3 weeks 2 of 4 developed scissor beak. After training everything in the book the one birds beak froze and she couldn’t eat or drink and the flock excluded her . It was time for her to go . I would strongly strongly suggest NOT getting the Lavender. The Blue and Black birds that I revived are amazing and perfect. 2nd bird just died randomly about 4 weeks in . Nothing like losing 72$ a bird . For the 2 remainder lavender birds one is large and beautiful and one is small and round . WASTE OF MONEY.

    Love them

    The Lavendars are wonderful chickens, the rooster are very large but not aggressive like my other rooster. Very friendly and love to hang out with me when I’m in the back field with them. They free range during the day.

  8. Mark

    Excellent choice

    I could not be more pleased with my lavender ameraucana from cackle hatchery! All are thriving, calm, good egg producers after only 6 months and one is sitting. They free range during the day and mingle with cats, dogs, bulls and horses.

    Lavender Ameraucana

    I ordered 3 female Lavender Ameraucana, only 2 survived due to post office delay, not Cackles fault. The one that I have is just stunning! She is still young and not laying yet, excited to see that first beautiful egg!
    Actually all the breeds I ordered have turned out beautiful, I ordered female only and all 15 I ordered were female.

  10. Love My Lavenders!

    One of my most lovely and eye-catching hens, these now 5-month olds are laying the most gorgeous eggs. I have gotten all my Americaunas- Lavenders, Easters and Olives- as day-old chicks from Cackle Hatchery and all have been in picture-perfect health and good natured as they mature. Children are simply bedazzled by these exotic looking birds and excited by their radiantly colorful eggs! KP

    Very happy with the quality of my lavender chicks

    I ordered 10 straight run lavender chicks I received 11. All but one made it. Very happy and actually very surprised with the quality of the birds was not expecting them to be as nice as they are especially coming from a large hatchery.

    Lavender Ameraucanas

    I ordered Lavendar Ameraucanas this spring for the first time. The chicks were beautiful and active… they feathered into a beautiful color. My Lavenders are wonderful hens that are calm, curious and definitely family friendly. They lay the most
    Beautiful blue eggs and have been a wonderful asset to my rainbow collection of eggs. Thank you Cackle Hatchery for always delivering such good quality chicks.

    The sweetest chickens I have ever had!!!

    My 4 Lavender Ameraucana’s all female (completely perfectly sexed by Cackle by the way, are the sweetest chickens yet! Even more than my Lavender Orp!!! I pet them, they cuddle and talk to me all the time. The sweetest teal eggs and all four are laying. Thanks so much for having them and your great sexing of them Cackle!

    Lavender Ameraucana

    My chick order is now 4 1/2 weeks and I have to say these chicks are not only beautiful, but have been vigorous and very active. They are just as laid back and curious and friendly as the black Ameraucan I got from you.

  15. Becky


    I am so happy with the 3 black Ameraucana’s from last year that I ordered Lavender and Splash this year. They are healthy robust and so laid back! Thanks for the extra chick! I loved the heat pack, gro gel, and chick food which I think made a huge difference since we hit subzero temps this month. Thank you, your chicks are always so nice!

    Lavender Ameraucana

    We have a Lavender Ameraucana hen, that we got as a day old chick from Cackle Hatchery. I also have a black Ameraucana that we got from Cackle Hatchery last year. We always liked our black Ameraucana because she has a pretty mild personality. So we got the Lavender this year, and I have to say our Lavender is amazing! She’s been the most laid back hen we’ve ever owned. I noticed that even as a chick she was much calmer than the rest of the chicks. Now she free ranges during the day and follows us around anytime we go out. We haven’t babied her or given her extra attention, she’s just naturally calm and laid back. She’s beautiful and feathering out very nicely. I have to say I’m highly impressed with Cackle Hatchery’s Lavender Ameraucanas! The breeder is doing an amazing job, and providing high quality, calm, family friendly birds. Highly recommend!!!
