So, I got my AM/AR/EE education from BYC'er's after I got my girls from a lady whom I thought was a breeder. Turned out she just gets shipments from hatcheries and then resells. My girls came from xtreme game birds in Texas. Well, it thought, so what; I'm not going to show them or breed them and I will get cool green eggs . . . NOT! Three of my four bearded "Ameraucanas" lay brown eggs. POO! Only one green egger. Just a note of experience for those still shopping.
