    I am looking for a reputable breeder for show quality Americaunas (large fowl, not bantams). I would like to acquire peeps or eggs in the spring of 2012 for my son and nephew to raise as 4H projects. After that they will be loved members of our small flocks. Both me and my brother have very small backyard flocks and do not have the room for the 25 new chickens most breeders require as a minimum purchase. That being said I would probably have to drive to get them in order to insure that they are treated carefully.

    Whittmore Farm is less than 2 hours away but they only have black and Blue. The only Americauna's at the local fair were black & blue. I was hoping for different color maybe a Blue Wheaten or Brown Red or Buff if I can get it.

    Any input would be very helpful

    Thanks again for any help

    What color Ameraucana's are you specifically looking for? You could go to the Ameraucana breeders page and there is a link for breeders. It also states if they sell hatching eggs, what colors, and other info too. I'd recommend Jean Ribbeck (pipsandpeeps) as a source to get eggs from if you want to start from eggs. She's located in Washington. I got eggs from her earlier this year and also purchased eggs from her in the past. I believe she has at least 4 or 5 different colors to choose from. If you want to do your own hatching I've always had a good hatch rate w/ her eggs. If you want to get chicks you could always try John Blehm. He is a breeder too. But I think he always sells out on his day olds, not sure. Check out the breeder page if you want to find someone local or close to you. Here is there website www.ameraucana.org. Hopefully this helps.
