    We did a thing.. expanding the flock!

    So, let me start by saying in Australia.. it tends to be harder to get pure bred chickens that meet the SOP especially where we’re located..

    Blue or Splash??

    Hey all! This will be my first real post. I’m a little confused as to what to be considered blue or blue splash in the Ameraucana breed. As I mentioned in my introduction post we were sold as Pure Araucanas by a reputable breeder but seeing as they’re not rumpless and have little beards coming...

    Pleased to be part of the club!!

    Hey all, my name is Christopher Sanchez. I’m an American living in QLD Australia with my Misses (our baby girl in her tummy), red cattle dog, and our new Ameraucana flock (sold as Auracanas but the rumpless aren’t available here so I can only assume that due to strict import laws this is as...
