Description

White Ameraucanas are one of several color varieties of Ameraucana chickens the American Poultry Association (APA) recognizes. Along with other varieties, the APA accepted white Ameraucanas in 1984.

Rather than being bred up from Araucanas, all varieties of Ameraucana derive from Easter Egger™ chickens. They originated with four breeders in the Midwest of the United States.

At Cackle Hatchery® we breed our white Ameraucanas to produce eggs with blue shells. However, a small percentage of their eggs will be some shade of light green. For a list of the best blue egg layers visit Cackle Hatchery’s Best Blue Egg Layers Blog.

Inherent to the Ameraucana breed is a genetic beak issue. One out of 100 chicks may have cross beak in some degree of severity. Cross beak is the same condition as scissor beak. In this condition the top and bottom beak do not align. And it normally gets worse as the chick grows. You can find more information about this issue on our Cackle Hatchery blog. Numerous articles about cross beak are also on the internet.

Also relative to the Ameraucana breed: Professional sexers have a hard time determining the gender of the chicks. Therefore, vent sexing on this breed is about 80% accurate on average. That’s well below the normal average of 90% accuracy for other breeds. Please take this factor into account when you order female Ameraucana chicks. If you wish to learn more about our white Ameraucanas, please contact us.

    Icing on the cake

    Love this breed. They are beautiful, family friendly, not bossy or mean to other breeds. Get along with the Polish, only better behaved. Plus they lay blue eggs.
