    My first generation girl is a purebred Black Ameraucana. She's a large gal, lays very big eggs, and they are bluish green. Her offspring lay eggs like the olive egg in the main picture. My 2nd generation gals are half black Ameraucana and half Black Copper Marans; most will have muffs and small beards, most will have some feathers on their shanks (but not heavily feathered), most have copper in their hackles, much like a female Black Copper Marans. All should be black, though I do have one gal that is half Blue Ameraucana and half Black Copper Marans. She has thrown an occasional blue, but not often.

    The not-so-fun-stuff: Although I do all that I can to make sure the eggs travel safely, using brand new individual bubble wrap pouches that have never touched another egg, lots of packing peanuts and extra bubble wrap packaging, once they leave my farm, it's out of my control as to what happens to the box, and I make no guarantees on your hatch rate. Also, I reserve the right to refuse any buyer.

    A few more pics - these gals lay many different shades of green, all will be olive colored, NO blues, NO light greens. Also, I cannot guarantee that you will hatch all pea-combed offspring. The ones with single combs more than likely will not produce green eggs, but will be dark brown. I have not had more than 20% hatch with single combs.
