    Hi, everyone. I have some new baby chicks that are Ameraucana/Orpington mixes and some purebred Ameraucanas. This thread is for Ameraucanas, Orpingtons, and mixes. I love them so much. Hope you enjoy talking about these great birds. Feel free to post pictures, ask questions, and tell stories about these great chickens.

    I have Chocolate and Butter, my almost five month old purebred Ameraucanas. I have three mixes. I don't have the room for all three of them because I have a bantam chick I want to keep, too. I'll give away one of these and any more that hatch. I am so excited about raising my babies. I haven't decided on a name for one of them, but the other is Pippa if a girl and Porky if a boy.
