    What color eggs are you getting? I would LOVE to see a picture.

    Trying to decide if I want them for my flock...

    Thanks!

    They do not truly fit the APA breed standard for Ameraucana, and I get blue/green colored eggs. Sorry, no photos.

    Both of your birds are ee's. However, the redder one is a cockerel, he won't be laying anytime soon. [​IMG]

    The darker one is a pullet. There is no name for their color.
