    Anyone know where you can get purebred Ameraucana chicks/eggs that are really blue , not just bluish-white ?

    Well, they are always deeper color at the beginning of the cycle and get progressively lighter as the molt approaches, so even if they start out blue, they may end up almost white. My own lay blue to greenish-blue eggs, but hers are a very pale blue now, almost white. After a molt break, I know they'll go back to their deeper color.
    I dont have my rooster any longer, but maybe someone can help you find some nice true Ameraucanas.
