    before i want to raise ameraucanas i want to know if it has good meat because i might buy 2 of them. Also if i buy 1 male and 1 female, will there be any chance of eggs in the future.

    True Ameraucanas are dual purpose birds so they are good for meat and eggs. If you want chicks then you will need a rooster and a hen.

    If you mean eggs as in eggs to eat, a hen can lay eggs without a rooster.

    If you mean eggs as in viable hatching eggs, then yes, obviously you will need both! [​IMG]

    if they are raised together from near birth, will they lay eggs.

    I think they will mate even if they have been raised together (I think that is what you are asking?)

    Did you know that ameraucana will lay green to blue eggs? We have them in our flock. They are a beautiful, sweet natured chicken. Little kids are amazed at the color of the eggs. You have chosen a very beautiful breed to start with. You will enjoy them a lot and you will get a lot of compliaments on them. We do.[​IMG]
