I have been thinking about getting a few more hens and possibly a rooster to add to my small flock. I have been over the looks of Ameraucanas and have been thinking about ordering some from a breeder because I want B/B/S hens but the smallest order is 25 chicks and straight run. I do not want that many and yes I could possibly sell the extras but I found a possibility of getting some older pullets (almost POL) that are B/B/S. They are not hatchery stock so they should be pretty pure and honestly I don't need absolutely pure just really love the B/B/S colors. This lady who has them for sale is the same lady that I got my 2 SLW and 2 GLW from. She orders and sells a lot of chicks from the different hatcheries but she takes really good care of them while she has them. I got my 4 almost three months ago and they have never been sick. She also has a 3 year old blue wheaten Ameraucana roo that she swears is really tame, is good with the hens and is a proven "daddy". She would be willing to sell him to me only with the knowledge that he is not going to the stew pot. I am so tempted to do this even though I was planning on starting with chicks next spring. If you were in my shoes, what would you decide? Open to any suggestions!!!
