Description:Started pullets are for people who
don't have the time, equipment or ability to care for chicks, or who are
just too anxious for some fresh backyard eggs to start with chicks!
Ameraucanas are astoundingly beautiful birds, and quite friendly. Their
small pea combs and sleek body shape give them the aspect of a bird of
prey rather than a chicken.
Ameraucanas lay blue eggs and they're a must-have for any rare breed
flock. This particular flock has been sourced from a quality show
breeder, so you may find yourself with some beautiful, show-quality
offspring! These are not the Easter Eggers that other hatcheries
deceptively call "Americanas" (and other misspellings). These are true
Ameraucanas---and they are also especially high quality lines!
Due to the genetics of the blue plumage color, these BBS Ameraucanas will hatch out with plumages of Blue, Black, or Splash (a
white or pale color with "splashes" of darker grey or black feathers as
seen in the photo). When breeding blue to blue, you end up with a mix of
50% blue, 25% black and 25% splash. However, in our breeding pen we
have lots of splash hens, so your plumage ratio will lean much more
toward blue and splash, with fewer black.
All 6-week-old chickens are shipped USPS Express Mail, and are
vaccinated for Marek's and MG (killed). Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
