- Splash Ameraucanas Chicken
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”

Pretty birds with puffy cheeks Review by Becky the Cat in Florida
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. (Posted on 11/28/2019)

Lovely And Colorful! Review by Becky Nevada
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. (Posted on 1/18/2019)
