    Does anyone have Dominant White Ameraucanas? Not EE's but hey if anyone one has dominant white EE's too let me know. I am looking for birds that carry dominant white and not reccesive white. Chicks should hatch white and not smokey colored I beleive. Please let me know, I am looking to buy fertile eggs for shipping soon.

    I have some.Just starting to set up the breeding groups.I have been working on these for 4 or 5 years.Not showable yet.I have a large black over white / black split hens.Eggs ready in 2-3 weeks.Breed from white/blacks splits to produce pure whites.I did not like the size of my split roosters so will use black again.I may have 1 split rooster left on free range.That is if the predaters have not got him.Could use him over these hens if you like.

    I have LF White AMs They carry the dominate gene. HOWEVER I do have some chicks hatch yellow and some hatch smokey grey (all obviously feather white) All birds in my breeding group are white. There are pictures of them here-
