Description

Splash Ameraucanas are mostly white birds with random splashes of blue to black color in their feathers.  They are very attractive and easily created by breeding two blue Ameraucanas together.  Since blue doesn’t breed true, blue, black and splash chicks may hatch.  Splash does breed true though, so splash bred to splash produces only splash chicks.  Splash and black are co-dominate, so splash bred to black results in all blue chicks.  Cackle Hatchery® started offering blue egg laying splash Ameraucanas in 2018.  Splash Ameraucanas are not a recognized standard variety by the APA.

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”

NOTE: It should be noted that this breed has an inherent genetic beak issue. 1 out of 100 chicks as they grow may have some variance in severity of scissor beak/cross beak. This can be best described when the top and bottom beak do not align and this condition normally will get worse as they grow. There are numerous articles and information on the Internet on this subject. Also most Easter Egger™ chickens don’t inherit the lethal alleles from their parents unlike a lot of Araucana chickens.

    They are so pretty with vivid white and grey splash! Mine are now about 5mo old close to full grown. They are slightly more timid/flighty than some of the other “fat fluffy hens” but have a very sweet demeanor overall no complaints. I am not sure about the egg color yet but they will soon come 🙂

    Ordered 4 females and they gave me an extra! All 5 are now 8 weeks old and doing fantastic! They are a beautiful addition to the flock!

    I ordered 3, ended up with 4 yippeee! Unfortunately one was a Roo however a friend wanted him, and she’s a happy girl! These are absolutely stunning hens. We are at 10 weeks now and they are lapchickens. I usually have one on each shoulder and another in my lap in the evening sunset. They are smart and personable….but I can see how they would dismiss a human if not raised closely as hatchlings. Each girl has different eye color and they are truly stunning. Thanks CH!! I love my girls.

    Beautiful!

    There was an extra one put into my order of 3 and as luck would have it, they are all girls! Came healthy and just a-peepin’. 10 weeks old now and so beautiful. All of my other chicken keeping friends are jealous! They are flightier than my other girls but I’m working on bribing with treats. My experience with cackle was so positive.

    Adorable!

    I ordered 8 unsexed, and was nervous about the shipping, but they were ready for pickup 36hrs after shipping! Cackle Hatchery went 10 just incase, but they’re all looking healthy after the first day! So excited! Will update at 1 month.

    Good blue eggs!

    My splashes that I got spring 2019 all laid blue eggs. One hen did not have any muffs or beard, but they were all more hardy and faster growing than my black Ameraucanas. One hen did go broody.

    Pretty birds with puffy cheeks

    They are 6 months old, I ordered as day old chicks from Cackle. Haven’t started laying yet, but I wanted some colorful eggs. What I didn’t know is that splash ameraucanas have puffy, fuzzy cheeks! So cute.

    I bought 4 for spring 2018 and got all roosters but that’s how it goes sometimes I kept one he is beautiful! Awesome hatchery would buy from again!!

    Lovely And Colorful!

    My Splash are almost a year old now and I just love them! The older they get the more splash markings show up. 1 in particular is stunning, looking as though I painted her with black spots and stripes! The others have gorgeous dark and light blue splotches and stripes. Great layers too with dark blue eggs.
