I purchased four straight run black Ameraucanas in April and unfortunately all four turned out to be roos. I plan on keeping one and am trying to rehome the rest. I really had my heart set on some black Ameraucana hens, even if just one... The only hens I got were the sexed Easter Egger pullets and even one of them turned out to be a roo. They're very pretty, though, and I love them! However, I still really want some black Ameraucana hens.
I recently found someone near me through the Ameraucana Alliance who breeds Blue, Lavender, Silver, Buff and Black Ameraucanas... So cool! I don't know that I would want to get into breeding in the future but I'd like to know what possibilities there would be with crossing one of my black Ameraucana roos with any of the above varieties. Could someone shed some light? I would definitely love a Lavender and a Blue hen.
I found the following on another thread:
Black roo x Black hen= 100% black
Black x Blue = 50% black 50% blue
Blue x Blue = 25% black 50% blue 25% splash
Splash x Splash = 100% splash
Splash x Blue = 50% splash 50% blue
Splash x Black = 100% blue
So what about:
Black x Buff?
Black x Lavender?
Black x Silver?
Thanks in advance!
