    Hope it's ok to post this here. I can't find any other place to put it.

    I am buying ten Ameraucana chicks from from Larry McEwen. These are the real deal Ameraucanas and lay blue eggs. They will be shipped either Feb 8 or 16, weather permitting and will be at least three weeks old.

    Description (per seller)
    Ameraucana "Blue egg layer"

    Ameraucanas lay the most beautiful blue eggs I have ever seen. This is NOT an easter egger. Ameraucanas have a pea comb and black or slate colored legs and fluffy muffs or beards. Chicks hatch with the cutest fluffy cheeks. These birds do quite well in cold weather. Our Ameraucanas are blues and blacks which can be run together because they occupy the same chromosomes.


    I have tried hatching eggs and have gotten mutts. He guarantees NO MUTTS. Not that there's anything wrong with mutts, I just want blue eggs, not green.

    If interested, your cost would be $7.00 per chick and split the shipping for a total of $53.50. I could deliver in the Sacramento area. Larry is planning to send me one extra chick. To be fair, we could do it this way: "I pick one, you pick one, I pick one, you pick one, etc." This will test our ability to figure out the pullets from the cockerels too! As for the extra chick, if you come to me, you get it and vice versa.

    Thanks,

    Mary

    Do you have a link of pictures of his stock? I tried googling and didn't find anything.

    I may be interested. I do want pure ameraucana for those pretty blue eggs. I was planning on hatching some this spring.
