I've been breeding Ameraucanas for a handful of years! Definitely not the master, but post some pics and let's see if we can figure it out!

Just wanted to stop by and say hi!
Welcome! I have 3 silkies too, a pair of whites and a splash pullet! I love their Antics! I'm sure you'll fit right in around here

Except with the ducklings, they just stare at him as much to say "I'll sit on you". It's so funny, and he's been great with Gavin, and has been fairly tolerant of handling/cuddling.
I think I'll be making a separate run and building a smallish coop, something big enough for them and the cornish, then the the ducklings will get moved in to it once everyone's processed.
Oh my gosh, Stitch sure is a character! Old english are usually like that though! I have a feeling that if he stuck around, him and my light sussex roo would've had problems. If you really like those guys, I'm sure I can find someone around breeding good quality BBS OEGB!

just the fact that someone took the time to put a hand written note in there is impressive
This happened to me when I ordered eggs too, bought a Dozen New Hampshire Reds and ended up with 15 new hamps, 1 light sussex, and 1 faverolle! Plus a note! People like this make up for all the crappy hatches and false advertising Now I have a beautiful Light sussex, plenty of New Hamps and my beloved Beau the faverolle
