    Quote:If I really liked a black with silver leakage, I might be tempted to use him on some Silver Ameraucana hens to create some splits........................ but I think you said the black has gold leakage, and some other problems are apparent that would cause me to question if he's even pure Ameraucana. As Jean stated, any leakage on blues or blacks is not good. You might just want to peek at the soles of the blue cockeral's feet, if they're yellow he isn't an Ameraucana. Regardless, IMO, there's just too many good black or blue Ameraucana males available to consider useing one with even minimal leakage to breed.

    Thanks, the soles of my blues feet are white not yellow. I dont have a separate coop so im guessing my ams program is out the window.

    thank you All,

    Mr. & Mrs. Garner did all the hard work... very nice place. Very lucky to have met them and set foot on their place, raised the bar for me.

    I just pushed the button on the camera, good lil camera [​IMG]

    had a great Ameraucana and then Wheaten Ameraucana talk too, head still spinning...

    will pass on the nice comments, thanks! [​IMG]

    model_A....Can you post some photos of the birds, too? It's good to see they have a nice clean set-up, but I'd love to see photos of the birds. N GA isn't too far away from me or a buy/trade visit! [​IMG]
