Anyone remember my blue Ameraucana, Nora, out of Cree Farms stock? Now, that is a beard! When her sister, Snow, and my black girl, Gypsy, are gone (they are 8 yrs old, with Gypsy turning 9 in Nov), I'm going to miss those blue eggs. I have one hen who is 1/2 BW Ameraucana and 1/2 EE who lays a gorgeous turquoise blue egg, but other than that, only one green egg layer.
She is beautiful. You do not have to be without Ameraucanas, however. We do know lotsa people who sell them.(not me)
