6 Ameraucana chicks. I was suprised on the different colors.
They are cute Easter Eggers. You will love the blue eggs. We do.
They are sooooo cute. I also picked up from Meyer Hatchery!
I sure was suprised on how long the line was when I got there. Folks where taking out boxes of day olds. May be I just got there at the wrong time.
Sebrightmom, I just noticed you are from Greencastle. Years back a friend and I made homing pigeon drops from the high school there. It is a 300 air mile trip back home for the birds. Almost all the pigeons made it back home before we did. The club paid us 50 bucks each and paid for our gas and food. Good deal in the 60's when we where 18 years old. I do know there was a lot of money placed on the winning birds. There was a fellow from Greencastle that met us there so he could get the fertile eggs. Always a dozen or so laying on the floor of the trailer floor. It is fun to watch 500 birds deciding which way to fly to get home.
That would be awesome to watch. I have never heard of them doing that here. I am only 10 mins from the high school.
to cute 3 more weeks til my pick up
I'm jealous, there's no decent hatcheries around me at all. I don't have any choice but to have them shipped unless I want to try for feed store chicks.
I also was surprised to see a variety of EE colors at my local feed store this year. I scooped up a couple that were not chipmunk marked.
Does anyone have a place to see different color variations in EE adults? I didn't know there where different colors. How true does the color markings stay in mature birds?
