    The ameraucanas are kind of high priced for the quality displayed.

    I'd want to see more pictures of their birds and the background on them. The picture they have of the BLRW doesn't show a very good example of the breed.

    master.of.chicken.....does this happen to be your website?

    Unless the picture is deceiving, I see that the black Ameraucana rooster they showed has his base color leaking--look over his eyes. I had one with similar issues and they should pull him out of the pen, IMO, especially with those high prices. Good to see someone at least breeding true Ameraucanas, though. The Marans, I'm not so inthralled with, generally (the breed, that is--I have no idea of the quality of the Marans on the site) Do you own the business?

    25 chick minimum, straight run, and $37.00 shipping.

    $175.00 - 25 Ameraucana chicks @ $7.00 each
    + 37.00 - shipping
    ------------

    $212.00 - total

    for ordinary quality birds, that's a lot of scratch! [​IMG]
