    I have two true Ameraucanas, one blue/one black. They are beauiful girls. They are a few weeks younger than my BO, RIR or BR and are much smaller than the other breeds at this age.

    I would like to know how your adult true Ameraucanas stand --compared to your other standard breeds..

    Thank you..Dixie

    The BBS Ameraucanas that I have are more of a lean, rangy body type. My rooster was very long legged and lean. I doubt a couple of mine meet those weights (though the rooster was young when I rehomed him) Yes, generally, I'd say they are a smaller than the average standard breed, from a hatchery anyway, though weights vary.

    my true cockerel is larger than my standards but he is all legs and he is older than the others and my blue and splash chicks are developing slower than their brothers and sisters but they dont get huge as adults tho not as big as like a jersey giant or something!
