Congrats on the original windfall and success on your first generation . I find it interesting that the pictured roo's comb has seemed to have been modified by the Silkie breed's walnut type . Best wishes for continued success with this unique chicken .

Leghorns are great egg laying chickens. They are friendly to other Leghorns and can easily fly. The only problems is that they are bad in the pecking order and they can make a mess of the yard....
I will start by saying that I love Australorps. In fact, my very favorite hen is an Australorp. She is such a sweet chicken and just let's you walk right up to her to pick her up. She doesn't run...

What's wrong with their feathers? - Page 9post #82 of 240812/17/09 at 2:00am
These are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!
It would be help if offspring could be bred by several people in case any problems come up in the original flock.
PLEASE--Anyone who gets a chance, please help keep this line of Ameraucanas (Yes--I realize they're actually EEs) going!post #83 of 240812/17/09 at 2:49ampost #84 of 240812/17/09 at 10:33am

Now that isn't the rooster from the original pair right? That is one of their sons? I seem to recall a pic showing the combs of the two originals and that roo's was much nicer in type.post #85 of 240812/17/09 at 1:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by Jubaby
...I would love to get some Blue/Black Pure Ameraucanas to breed with the silkie ones, but I currently don't have another pen to use...
Would it work to add two (so they could be buddies) Black or Blue Ameraucana hens in with your young roo in that pen? Or in with your older roo (wherever he's kept)?post #86 of 240812/17/09 at 9:41pm
I would lke to be put on the list for some eggs as well!NPIP # 64-1310- Buff Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, Silver Laced Wyandottes, White Silkies, White Rocks, Speckled Sussex, Gold Laced Wyandottes, Gold Laced Polish, Silver Laced Polish, Delewares, Gold and Silver Sebrights, Blue Silkies, Mille Fluer d'Uccles, 1 Black Lab, 1 Golden Retriever, 1 Loving Wife and Three wonderful kids.

I still have the original rooster. He is a very aggressive bird and is in with my pen of other mixed chickens. But he was very mean to the older hen and I just couldn't keep them together. This rooster is a son. I'll try to go get a picture of the first rooster this afternoon, especially his comb now. And yes, my desire would be to get some Blue/Black ameraucanas to put in with that rooster soon.post #88 of 240812/18/09 at 10:07am
Your older roo might be okay with a group of hens. His attentions might be diverted this way. I think it would be worthwhile to get several black/blue hens with him. All their progeny would carry the gene for this feathering and could be valuable if something happens to your true-breeding splash stock.SteveStevepost #89 of 240812/19/09 at 1:09pmThread Starter
Here is a picture I took of the Rooster #1 - Ozzie. His comb is really pretty similar to Rooster #2. He is currently in a pen with hens, but just a bunch of mixed flock.post #90 of 240812/19/09 at 2:20pm
