    Hi everyone. I thought that it would be fun to have a contest for pure Ameraucanas only, no EE's. That means Blue, Black, Splash, Wheaten, LAVENDER, Blue Wheaten, Buff, White, Brown red and Silver Ameraucanas. Contests ends Feb 10th.

    Rules/Guidelines
    The guidelines are to please post the bird's name, age, color and sex. And of course, a picture. LOL. Also, there is NO judging other people's birds, there is one judge. [​IMG]

    The prize is only a congratulations in my signature and page, and pics the winners will be posted on my page.

    There will be two categories- male and female.


    Example... Blue Ameraucana. For the record, this is not my photo, it is from google images.

    Thank you, and have fun!

    Quote:That's an Easter Egger, not an Ameraucana.

    The trick is, if you can't label your bird with a color automatically and be 100% sure she's that color. . . She's not an Ameraucana. The color of the bird is in most cases a good way of telling EE vs Ameraucana. [​IMG]

    Yes, never trust hatcheries or feedstores to sell purebred Ameraucanas or Araucanas. They don't.

    MPC is selling blue ameraucana hatching eggs though, specifically said in bold ''NOT EE''.
