    I always wanted some yard birds there had been this lady selling chickens & chicks at the local flea market . so i asked the lady what kind of chickens & how much ? she gave me three 6week old black cooper marans pullets for $10 bucks. I was hooked just like my garden & my fish tanks. I did some searching on the web were i saw the blue egg laying Ameraucana i had to have some. I was in luck i asked the local feed store and they said they would have day old ameraucana pullets the next week .I went to pick up my 2 chicks i don't know what happened but i ended up with 2 chipmunk looking ameraucanas 1 light bramma named tweety & a buff orpington named Buffy. the kids liked the birds so much the next week we were back at the feed store you know just looking . we came home with 2 sebright chicks i hope we get a male & female. well that's a little about me & my pets

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG] Sounds like you're off to a fun beginning. [​IMG]
    Just, FYI, feed stores usually sell Easter Eggers and call them Ameraucanas. They are still great birds and you will most likely get green eggs anyway. That's happened to a lot of us, myself included! But I love my EEs. And, I also have a Buff Orpington named "Buffy."
