This is a thread for the serious discussion of breeding, showing, and the genetics of true Ameraucana, according to the US APA/ABA Standard of Perfection. Pictures of EE, OE, or other breeds are not allowed. Please introduce yourself. I'll start - I've been breeding Ameraucanas since 2011 in the wheaten and blue wheaten varieties. I added blacks last year and blues this year. The biggest challenge I have faced with the wheatens is the black striping in the hackles, occasional stubs on the legs, and specks of porcelain white in the ear lobes.
