Ameraucana

Love my Ameraucana

A review on: Ameraucana
Sen

Pros: Sweet temperament, friendly (with regular handling), lays well, beautiful blue eggs, beautiful bird, gets along well with other birds, gentle

Cons: Eggs are small-ish, goes broody easily

I only have one Ameraucana, and only have had her for a while...I got her as an adult from another BYCer, and she had not been handled very much at all, as her prior owner had a lot of birds and didn't tend to hold them much.   Since I have only 4 birds total, mine get handled regularly. She, along with the two BLRW hens I got at the same time, was VERY skittish when I first got her....
