    Pips and Peeps might have some chicks for sale. Maybe she will chime in. There are others that raises black and buff color ones.

    Are you looking for bantam or large fowl? I can direct you to who I sold my flock to if you're looking for bantams. I'm sure they're still working on them.

    Are all those chick colors that you are hatching coming from one pen of birds? If so it sounds like easter eggers, but if not and you want Ameraucana try Pips&Peeps or join us on the Ameraucana breeders site where you can connect with some Ameraucana breeders [​IMG]

    she looked like this hen on this page.

    my other hen is black.

    and the roo is alot of colors black/yellow neck and redish brown/white body and a black tail. so anything can happen. i guess they could be called EE's and i wouldn't care. i still love them.

    Yes, based on the picture on that link you have an Easter Egger. EE'rs don't breed true so it's going to be hard to purposely get one the exact colors you want. Have you checked out the BST section?

    Best place to go to find a good, quick answer to that question as well as a good source for your birds is www.ameraucana.org . Then click on the Breeders List and look for those who sell Buffs. Sorry, I only have the WBS variety.

    Hope that helps.

    God Bless,

    Tailfeathers ~ Just so you don't get in trouble, you aren't allowed to link other sites with forums on here, or at least that is what I was told [​IMG]

    Thanks Sara. I'll have to go back and look at the rules again. I was thinking you just couldn't promote other websites or groups on BYC. I didn't think that applied to referencing a site just to help somebody out. I would think we ought to be able to refer someone to the actual source of information when needed but I'll go check the rules again when I get a chance.

    Moderators - sorry if I broke the rules. I was just trying to be helpful.

    God Bless,
