    Egg with soft tail

    My mom gave me some chickens a few months ago, and they came to live with me in the city. They have a large portion of the yard to roam, and we live near a big park with other wild animals which is not great because of hawks and wild birds with bugs on them. They do get bugs on them as well but...

    Review of my experience with Meyer Hatchery

    Hey everyone, I'm not at all affiliated with Meyer Hatchery. We just ordered nine chicks from them in December 2019 and I thought people might find my experience with it useful. I had backyard chickens for years but never got chicks in the mail before. We specifically ordered a Blue Ameracauna...

    EE’s puffs abd beards

    Please Can somebody tell me if beards and puffs on EEs are from a dominant gene or a recessive gene. I have many types of chickens on the ranch and sell eggs and chickens to locals but have become most interested in Ameraucanas but for now have EEs. I have hatched many eggs of other varieties...

    Breed and/or Gender please?

    Hello! I was looking at my local sale auction and got this lovely chicken from a guy. He said they were ameracaunas (hopefully I spelled it right) and didn't know if they were male or female because he was selling them for a friend. My younger sister has an Easter Egger who she adores. She...

    Ameraucana Rooster needing a home in Sacramento, California

    He’s a little over a year old, was purchased as a chick labeled pullet but we all know how that goes! I’ve gotten lucky and not had any complaints with this guy (my previous rooster caused a county code enforcement issue!) but we will be welcoming our baby boy into the world in just two weeks...

    Bay Area CA - 2 young Ameraucana roosters to re-home

    Around eight weeks old, just discovered they are roosters (bought four young ones from the local 4-H). One is red, one is blue. Very sweet and pretty birds. We live in San Jose, which doesn’t allow roosters, and we are willing to drive to deliver them. My daughter would very much like to find...

    Ameracaunas or EEs?

    Just picked up these four chicks from a larger local hatchery. They were marked as Ameraucana/EEs, so I just assumed they were all EEs when ordering. That being said, they're here now, and they look more like Ameraucanas to me! A little help here?? One looks like a bearded Australorp, something...

    5 week old Ameraucana: hen or roo

    Hi all, can I get a quick gender check on this bird? She sure looks like a hen to me, but likes to get in the typical rooster fighting stance and boss the other hens around. The comb looks good to me but this is my first Ameraucana so i dont have a frame of reference and they seem quite...
