You wouldn't regret it! You'll love that cross!

Please feel free to post everything. Picture heavy is what I want. The more pictures the better. The Ameraucana rooster is a Blue Wheaten but any color would be fine, even an EE would be fine.

The Roosters:
-Blue Wheaten Ameraucana
-Any Color Ameraucana
-EE
-Black Australorp

The Hens:
-Red Sex-Links
-Rhode Island Reds
-White Leghorns
-Barred Rocks
Hi I hatched out from the Black Australorp Roo over RIR. Such a cute chick. My favorite one so far. She was growing so fast. She had the funniest personality. I highly recommend doing this because, black Australorp eggs are small at first and whereas RIR are huge so the huge Australorp chick has a ton of room to grow in the egg. Good luck! I've also done Australorp over EE pullets. Those girls are currently 9.5 weeks old.
