Aloha Chickens

Aloha Chickens

“My Maizee is an Aloha that was rejected from the breeding group due to her green legs. Other than that, she's a perfet example of the breed. She lays beautiful smallish cream coloured eggs pretty regularly. She's still laying even though the rest of the flock is slacking. She is pretty noisy. She always greets me with a very loud welcome, and continues to welcome me about 5 minutes after I walk...” --Rezia

Ameraucana

Ameraucana

“ 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...” --CCCCCCCCHICKENS

Araucana

Araucana

“ A challenging breed for the newcomer and even challenging for the advanced breeder when breeding towards the SOP but they more than make up for all of their difficulties by providing so much enjoyment and use.  Breeding for the trademark tufts is not for everyone, especially those with tender hearts.  The gene responsible for the tufts (which are not the same as muffs/beard in other...” --smoothmule

Australorp

Australorp

“ I will start by saying that I love Australorps. In fact, my very favorite hen is an Australorp. She is such a sweet chicken and just let's you walk right up to her to pick her up. She doesn't run or anything. Sometimes she even comes up to me and acts like she wants to be petted. I love their deep black color with a greenish sheen and how they are built. They are also great layers. There was...” --chickenman98

bantam ameraucana

bantam ameraucana

“I purchased two bantam Ameraucanas from Cackle Hatchery. From day one they were such darlings. Even though they were a week old they seemed to imprint with me. My favorite one, Butter, however, turned out to be a male. As did the other, Blue. But I decided to keep them. They withstood the cold well, with their tiny pea combs remaining unfrostbitten. Blue eventually developed quite a temper....” --chickincrazy

“ The two hens I had were purchased from a local lady that was moving house (England). They were 2 and a half years old, and in need of a new home. She had alot of other breeds, but these were so beautiful that they stole my vote immediately. Stunning lacing, yellow legs and very large and heavy. They are about the same size as my Brahma's. By far the most friendly hens...” --Sailing Dede
