Caring tips for Ameraucanas?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm getting an Ameraucana chick soon in spring 2016 and I want to know any caring tips for them? I know they have similar caring tips as regular chickens does but any tips on them like their friendliness or docile. I'm buying 1 of them and is a hen because I live in an urban area and rooster is a little loud for urban people. 

I have 1 Rhode Island Red hen, 1 Buff Orpington hen, 1 Brown Leghorn, and 5 goldfishes.

I think if you want a not so noisy chick that you should get two or more chicks. If you get one chick it will most likely imprint on you, so when ever you leave it alone it will get scared and cry. The other reason why its good to have more than one chick is because if that one doesn't make it for some reason you have another. The breed you are getting needs really no special care.

5 dogs, 4 cats, 15 chickens, a lot of fish, 4 mandarin ducks, 2 parakeets, and 10 baby quail

 

Don't try to rush yours or our lives living is a gift worth enjoying;)

They don't need any special care. But be aware that most hatchery sourced Ameraucana are actually Easter Eggers, and Easter Eggers do tend to have a high rate of sexing errors. Even if you buy a sexed pullet, there is absolutely no guarantee that it will be a pullet. Accidental cockerels do happen, even when buying sexed chicks from a very reliable hatchery.

Easter Eggers are also highly variable when it comes to temperament.
