    Where would be a reliable source for Amercauna's? Don't really want to buy from hatchery as I know those are going to be EE.

    You can search the Ameraucana threads here on BYC, there are several going for different colors, etc. You may find a breeder fairly local to you.

    Or, you can go to the Ameraucana breeder's club website, I believe they have a listing of members by state.

    Meyer hatchery at least does have pure Ameraucana, I believe they're blue. I thought another hatchery had blacks---Cackle, maybe?

    Sand Hill Preservation, definitely. It's not a hatchery and doesn't take orders by credit card.

    Go to Facebook. There are two groups for Ameraucanas. You will find the breeders there. Sand Hill is a hatchery too.

    What i meant by was that sand hill is more of a preservation farm more than a hatchery :D
