    i have a trio of ameraucanas that i hatched this spring.they have not started laying yet.the parents are from 2 different BYC members.the father(line A ) is a wheaten ameraucana and the hen(line B) is a blue wheaten ameraucana.

    i don't breed for show but i like to have a good representation of the breed.
    thanks for any tips-be gentle:oops:

    i really like the cockeral because he already has a darker beard than his father.

    thanks guys.
    i think that the wheaten pullet has some black in her hackles but like i said,i am not showing them and i am still learning the APA standards.
    i am looking foward to some of their babies this spring and see what they produce.
