    I keep adding to the list of birds I want...

    With Ideal, what is the percent of blue or green eggs that they lay once grown? The last time I bought, it was from a different hatchery and it was
    50 light brown(pinkish) to 50 percent blue or green. Since I would be getting these mostly for the eggs, I would like to order from some place that has
    the highest percent blue or green.

    Then post local and buy local. It is a crapshoot with hatcheries. If you didn't care about the egg color and were just looking for pet that lay any color hatcheries ar fine. When you have standards you're best off to advertise and find them locally. There are so many great people on BYC that are willing to help [​IMG]

    Good Luck!!

    Hatchery "Ameraucanas" are easter eggers, not Ameraucanas or Araucanas. Ameraucanas only lay BLUE eggs.

    Quote:It is what Ideal calls them. Not out for a debate. Just want to know folks out there that bought from Ideal and what the percent of blue or green to brown.
