A friend of mine has a small flock of Ameraucanas and is offering me some fertile eggs. I want to develop my flock into a dual-purpose flock, and am wondering if these are a decent choice. I'm interested in developing my flock from local sources as much as possible, so I'm not looking for the "perfect" breed--just a "good enough" breed that I can readily source locally. My friend, by the way, is a good and educated chicken breeder/owner, so the birds will be good quality. But I don't think she eats her birds, so she may not know whether they serve well in that capacity as well. Thanks!
