    Ok I am selling off my laying flock to begin a small Ameraucana breeding program. I have been hatching out chicks lately and I love them. So I am leaning toward the rare Brown red color but I thought I would ask what color is your favorite.

    I saw some blue ones on here this past week that were absolutely breathtaking.

    I'd love to have some of those.

    Blue. [​IMG] The brown reds are awfully pretty, too--are those bantams? I also like the blue wheaten.

    Here's one of my blue hens:

    Brown red looks good. If I thought I could get some of those for sure, I'd buy the hatching eggs.
    Trouble is, most A-caunas I see are basically feed store mutts and you get no other assuance except "maybe."
