    Anyone looking for some young Ameraucana cockerels ? (or just want to see pics ?) They were hatched this past April.

    It's amazing all the color variations and beautiful feather patterns that turned out from breeding:

    a blue wheaten Ameraucana rooster x blue wheaten Ameraucana hen
    and the same blue wheaten Ameraucana rooster x blue Ameraucana hen

    We sold every single one of our Ameraucana hens. I guess people just love the color of their sky blue eggs. (We sure do !)

    And their little muffs and beards are too cute, along with their pea combs.

    Check out our website !

    Quote:Hatch rate is not good. The ones that didn't get damaged in shipping made it to lockdown and didn't hatch. My other eggs did so it wasn't incubation.

    I just got mine from ebay from a lady out of Georgia not sure if she is a BYC member. Great shipping lots of extras. [​IMG] that I get a good hatch!!!

    I believe she got hers from peachick. She is on BYC also. I got my first ones from her and had a great hatch (5 roos 2 hens [​IMG] but what is new there!!!)

    Is color leakage common in lavender splits? I have a young blue roo, which came from lav split stock. that has silver leakage in his hackle feathers. I also have a couple of black/lav split cockerals which have red leakage. I am just beginning my education into poultry genetics, but I wouldn't expect leakage from black and lavender unless the black color wasn't pure to begin with. I plan to cull the roos with leakage, but should I cull the pullets from the same breeder? Will they pass on the leakage even though they don't show it, or are they ok to use? Thanks for any advice.

    I hatched LOTS of lavenders this summer and ended up with one roo that has leakage (I think). None of the parents are showing leakage. From my experience with other breeds I can tell you it is much more common to be visible in the males. But- I would do some test breedings before you got rid of the pullets or moved them to the EE pen. The might work out fine with unrelated roosters.
