Pros: Gerogeous birds, Lay beautiful eggs, I love to show them, Friendly
Cons: None that I can think of
Ameraucanas are georgeous birds. My favorite variety are the blue, but i love them all (white, black, buff, wheaten, blue wheaten, brown red, silver and the un accepted colors too lavender and splash). The blue eggs they lay are so pretty too. Personally Ameraucanas are my favorite breed. The first chicken I ever had was an ameruacana. I love to show them. All of mine are docile, really cold hardy, friendly, and I have realized other people have said that they pick on their other brds, but I have never had that problem with them. Also it seems like a lot of people say theirs are skitish, maybe I have been lucky but all mine are as friendly as could be. And speaking of cold hardy, I live in Indiana and the weather is so umperdictable, it get really cold and reallly warm. They do really well during the winter (I have never had one get to cold and die or anything like that). And as long as they had a shady place to relax they were good when it got really warm at. I think Ameraucanas are awesome birds and would make an awesome addition to your flock.
