    Yes you are on the right track. Make sure your Ameraucana is laying blue eggs, and that your line of BCMS lays a nice dark chocolate egg (unless it's the rooster... then just make sure his sisters lay the chocolate egg) :)

    They SHOULD only lay blue, but to find a true Araucana is tricky. You need to get them from a respected breeder.
