I raise game birds and Coturnix quail but my DW has expressed great interest in eating quail eggs and wanted a few hens. I went onto Ebay and ordered 12 Americauna hatching eggs for 4.99 plus 10 or 12 bucks for shipping all the way from California. She sent (dirtgirl824) 12+1 beautiful blue EGGS AND 6 HATCHED AND THEY ARE GORGEOUS CHICKS. If I knew they were this good looking I would have done this before. Don't care if they are EEs or Americauna, ( I know the arguments, read them on the forums) but I don't have experience with anything other than game birds. Any information would be appreciated. Update Spring 2011. This is what they look like now.
