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 .

I have 11 Australorp hens on my farm and they are dedicated egg layers. They remain calm and allow me to touch them without much fuss. 4 of my girls are in a run with a Speckled Sussex hen and...
I received a Fayoumi chick as my exotic and have really enjoyed watching him grow. Slight in stature but big on personality. Henry, (rooster) has very accepting of 'others' in his run....he's...
One of my favorite breeds! I kept a small flock of these little darlings. My daughter had her pets and would carry them around. Good layers. Good mothers. Hardy. Loved 'em!
I had several batches of Ameraucanas. Wanted to love them because of the beautiful eggs, but just couldn't. Had a few adults escape from a very secure pen and go off to live in the woods. We had a...
I can't say enough good about these birds. We had two and they were among my top ten favorites of all the chickens we've had so far. I would not hesitate to get more.

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 265612/17/09 at 2:49ampost #84 of 265612/17/09 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 265612/17/09 at 1:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by Jubaby

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 265612/17/09 at 9:41pm

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 265612/18/09 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 265612/19/09 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 265612/19/09 at 2:20pm
