    Quote:My only problem is that the lavender chicks do not sell locally at all. But the request for only show quality chicks in 2 colors that aren't even excepted, and only blue-blue eggs from lavenders is flipping ridiculous. If I knew they wanted imaginary chickens I would have hatched them instead!

    I'm going through the same problems with my neighbor pretty much. She bought eggs from me to eat for some time, then decided she really liked the chickens too and wanted some of her own. So I hatched her out some eggs and suddenly she wants to show them too and I explained to her that lavenders are not an accepted color variety for show. So then she said "How about egg contests" where you enter eggs ya know. And I told her "Most these eggs are greenish blue, more green then blue. And they are very pale thanks to the Lavender gene. If you want blue blue eggs try to find someone selling wheatens and colors such as that which throw a darker egg. She got all retarded on me and refused to listen. She was just like "We'll see just hatch some for me and we'll go from there."

    I have a lady coming for some wheaten chicks next week. If I don't have enough hatched she's going to fill in the rest with lavs, but I will let you know [​IMG] Thanks!

    Hi all,
    A newbie question from me, I bought what I thought were 3 araucana pullets about 4 months ago and was recently told Infact, I have 2 ameraucanas and 1 araucana. I'm posting here for verification, also if anyone could confirm the gender?

    Ameraucana:

    Araucana:

    (sorry, I only have pics of one of the Ameraucanas)

    A little backround, I had heard there are no Ameraucanas in Australia however the selection of birds the breeder had available were 99% lavender, the 2 suppused Ameraucanas I have were the only 2 dark ones. I heard they all hatched from blue eggs but the 2 darker ones are significantly larger than the Araucana. Can you see any roosters? Thanks again [​IMG]
