    How do you pronounce "Ameraucanas"? We have one, but we can't pronounce it and don't want to look like idiots when we talk about it at black tie functions [​IMG]

    Spelling copied from the ABC(Ameraucana Breeders Club) - Ameraucana.

    I say it "uh-mare-ah-khana". I probably have some midwest twang/yooper accent going on that way though [​IMG]

    Quote:ok, so why does everyone in the breed thread spell it Ameraucana? And the breed club spells it Ameraucana too? It's a different spelling than yours.

    That's how I've see it spelled too, Ameraucana. Where I ordered mine it was spelt like that.
