    I have a wheaten color Ameraucana who is to lay any day. What color eggs will she have?

    A true Ameraucana will lay blue eggs.

    Does anyone have another color Ameraucana that lays eggs that are not blue? I also have white and brown and wheaten and they lay blue eggs.
    Looking for other colors and wonder how to pick out an Ameraucana that will lay different colors than blue.

    The Ameraucana is a blue egg laying breed - it isn't about the color of the bird, it is a characteristic of the breed as a whole. What color of eggs are you seeking to get? If you are wanting green type eggs you might want to consider Easter Eggers, Olive Eggers, etc.

    LL Ameraucanas lay blue eggs. If some one sells you an Ameraucana that lays another color, you are getting ripped off. If you want eggs colored different than blue, try another BREED.
