    Quote:They've really got EE's...but some of them are VERY nice. I'm considering getting some since I haven't had any luck hatching any true ameraucanas.

    Ah, thanks for the clarification! DD wants EEs next time around, but I'm not in any position to do this right now. We're not picky, though,.... just give us colored eggs coming from a sweet, pettable chicken and we're happy.

    I ordered 2 EE's from them back in August, thinking I was ordering Ameracaunas. They are both very nice chicks. I just hope they lay colored eggs!

    This is straight from the email I received this morning...

    "This special applies only to Ameraucanas hatched and shipped prior to November 24, 2008. Offer applies only to orders of 25 or more Ameraucanas. The regular small order charge on orders of less than 100 chicks applies, as does the boxing charge if you add a few males. Air mail charges apply to shipments outside of the states of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma."

    I am fine with EE quality for layers, I ordered 50. I can't keep them here, I will grow them out, keep any really nice ones and sell the rest!
