Quote:I've been doing this cross since I got the Iowa Blues. Great little chickens - very cute, bolder than pure Ameraucanas and lay a lovely green egg all year round I do a batch every year. This time I thought I'd try to incorporate the self blue like Connie is with her Bantams. I have a Lavender Am rooster with an ugly tail that I hope will cross well with my pure AMs and I just tossed in my second string IaB birchen hens to help keep him company. I have a few in the incubator for next week. I don't expect anything exciting to look at though - they should all be solid black.
