    I got one from my buff Ameraucana, but the only rooster is a white Ameraucana, so incubating her eggs would result in Easter eggers. I want SOP Ameraucanas, so the buffs eggs are getting eaten.

    If they were mine I'd hatch them. Round here I use about anything that looks good for breeding Naked Necks. Got some colored ( green ) eggs going in my NN's right now. Don't know how long it will last though I do t have anything else to breed to keep the colored eggs going.

    If you'd like to buy some day old hatchlings, I'd be happy to help. Here's a picture of what my buffs eggs look like. I don't know if my rooster carries the blue egg gene or not. I'll only find that out once his babies start laying.

    Completely understand that. I just started the stay-at-home mom thing this year. It's taken adjustment, to say the least.
