    I just won the wonderful Americauna eggs that badnfluinz just generously gifted, but I have my incubators full and I don't hatch chickens very well, so I would love to give them to someone who will really enjoy them.

    So, just post why you want them and I'll have my friend pick the winner tomorrow night. We'll have the entries close at 9:00PM EST.

    There is no pre-conceived notion on what she's looking for in your reason. Any reason is fine. YES, you can nominate another member if you like!

    I'll simply have badnfluinz ship directly to the winner!!

    Good luck everyone!

    That is so generous of you!
    I would love to have some Americauna eggs! We recently lost 10 chickens & of those 10, five were my Americaunas. I had a problem with a predator (resolved now) that apparently liked the taste of them better than my other chickens. My two favorite chickens were Hedwig & Hauke... we lost them in the attack. The closest thing I have to an Americauna right now is one EE hen, Phoenix. My BAs pick on her, but she's a good girl.
    I miss my Americaunas!

    Wow, It is really cool you are doing this!

    My story... lol...

    Basicly everything we own is adopted.. 2 dog shelter adoptions, 1 dog rescued from a local person, 1 mini horse hurricane katrina victim, 1 pony adopted cause owner passed away, 2 sheep adopted from rescue center and..
    we originally adopted 2 roos that were going to be my co workers dinner. They free range around our yard. So one day my husband decides we need EGGS... So luckly the feed store was doing their livestock sale that coming weekend... I bought 2 1year old hens. Brought them home left them in a crate for my roos to adjust to them. Let them out and 4 hours later they were dead. My mom's dog came over and killed them.

    So, my husband and I built a coop and adopted 6 already laying hens from someone. they are happy and healthy now... all of the animals.

    I do this all because I want our kids to grow up with animal and experience different things. My daughter tells everyone she meets what kind of animals she has.

    So I recentlly ordered some chicks. My family could not be happier with them!!! SO ANYWAY! I say all that because.

    I am wanting the kids to experience eggs hatching! I just think that it is something amazing to experience.

    Good luck choosing! Thanks for taking the time to read this!!!

    Pagan:

    I have gone through the predator problems and as soon as I think that I have them solved, they remind me that they are cunning. I've never hated an animal in my life...until I started to see what these predators can do.

    I'm happy that you have it fixed!!

    We have just started with chickens. My 14 yr old daughter really enjoys them and would like to hatch some eggs. She helped build the coop and today helped build a brroder.

    I would really like some Ameraucanas just because no egg basket would be complete without those beautiful blue eggs! I don't really have a good reason for wanting them - I just do. All I can say is I have a huge barn for all my chickens and they'd be spoiled rotten here!

    If you consider us, we'd share the eggs with the little girl across the street. Most of her chickens are getting up there in age and her father said she had to rehome some of them, and she did, but now she doesn't have very many egg layers, or very many pet chickens. They don't make a whole lot of money so they need to raise a lot of their own food, including their own eggs. They wouldn't eat the birds when they got older either. She would love and spoil those chicks immensely and she has experience too hatching the eggs. She would also take them to 4-H in the egg production section. My girls also are looking for future egg producers to take to the 4-H fair. We don't plan to eat the birds, just love them and spoil them terribly, lol. They love any eggs different from the standard brown or white eggs and want some of their own to raise so they can get that surprise when they go to collect the eggs. We have a good sized coop and protected running room, and they will be spoiled and loved right from hatching. I hope you do consider us. I'd love to be able to tell the little girl across the street that I had a belated birthday present for her. Thanks for reading this!
