    ok so i was wondering about the pure bred amaruacanas i herd they were hard to come by cause they were just made like 100 years ago or something so there kinda rare and also about selling them cause I'm getting some and when i sell the chicks this spring will people actually want this breed or is it not the most popular breed on the list to sell and i live in Canada so i guess there even harder to get here

    No such thing as a pure bred amaruacana. If it is an amErAUcana that is a different story. But many people sell "pure bred ameraucana" that are not much more than a mutt.

    The APA recognizes Ameraucanas as a breed, yes. But not all Ameraucanas are pure. People lie or are often misinformed.

    Don't trust too many hatcheries. Even if they say true or pure Ameraucanas.

    ok ill take that into mind and saying that a lot of people trick you so meaning the purebreds are hard to come by and they would be even harder to come by in canada where I'm located because there an American breed that was just made in the 80s right
