I'm planning on getting a flock of ameriucanas because I love their blue eggs. I want to have the prettiest bluest eggs I can get, and I want them to be fairly free of blood spots and meat spots, so I don't want hatchery birds, as it is my understanding that hatchery birds tend to have those issues more than pure breeds do. But I'm not interested in showing. I really just want them for egg production. All of the listings I see in the BST section emphasize the bird's show potential, but none really talk about egg production. If I go with a pure breed anything, am I going to be sacrificing egg production for pretty birds? I'm willing for a reduction in production to emphasize pretty eggs, but not pretty birds. As long as they're healthy, I don't really care if they conform to show standards and have correct tail angles. What would be the best way to go about getting the kind of birds I want?
