    I will have Wheaten, Blue Wheaten and Splash Wheaten Ameraucana hatching eggs and chicks available next spring, (March, '11.) if you can wait until next year I can guarantee you some great birds! My stock comes from pips&peeps, who is also on BYC. She is in WA.

    It'd be great to work with you!

    I'll add your name and username to a list that I've already started on my computer. My pullets will actually be laying in about a month (hopefully! [​IMG]) so I should be able to start doing test hatches soon! Those chicks will probably go up for sale on CL.

    I've put off building the breeder pens entirely too long and now they're almost ready for them, I need to start building... [​IMG]

    I sure can. : ) I'd love to get a list of folks going now, so that I can start fulfilling orders as soon as possible next spring, or possibly later this year. Though I don't know how well the girls will lay in the winter. Our winter's in the Bay Area are mild so it might be possible for me to get a few orders out before the first of the year.

    I will have an option for those of you who want your chicks vaccinated against Marek's. All of my bird have been vaccinated and I feel it is a very responsible thing to do. IMHO. I'm not sure what I'll be charging yet and how the vaccination costs will factor into that but I will let everyone know as I get closer to actually shipping eggs/chicks.

    Thanks for your interest!

    I have a blue wheaten cockerel that I hatched from eggs I ordered from"peachick." If you're interested and can pick up in Encino, please email me. I think she's got some of the bluest Ameracauna eggs out there.

    Peachick originally received her eggs from pips&peeps (Jean Ribbeck) too, so we have the same stock. The eggs I hatched were BLUE!

    How are your birds? I have heard of some less than favorable feedback about eggs/chicks sold by peachick.
