    I just answered you in the Breeds section, red, but I'll repost it here, LOL. We must have cross-posted.
    I do currently have a Black Ameraucana cockerel with two Blue Ameraucana pullets (true breed, not Easter Eggers), however, I am booked up on eggs till the end of January and my boy and one of the girls are going to a new home at that time. I don't plan to breed Ameraucanas any longer, at least not for the forseeable future. Sorry! They are great birds, though. I'll only be keeping one of my girls and she'll go in with the laying flock. Mine do lay blue or greenish-blue eggs, however your eye perceives it.
    You won't find true Ameraucanas at a large hatchery; you'll need to get them from a smaller breeder to get a true Ameraucana or true Araucana. Jody (hinkjc) sells rumpless Araucanas right now that lay blue eggs

    Edited to add: All my Ameraucana chicks are already sold. Sorry!​

    So Cyn,
    Do you think the new owner would be inclined to ship eggs?

    I don't know. She's never done it before. I'll tell her people are interested and see what she says.

    ****I asked. She may want to sell hatching eggs, but not for awhile. She wants them to hatch for herself first, however, she knows they're in demand.
