    I'm looking for about a dozen blue Ameraucana eggs to hatch starting in mid March. I have green eggs but want some of those lovely blue eggs. Color of chicken doesn't matter as long as it will lay blue eggs!

    Yes, I'm into the color. I have no interest in showing chickens...just for egg laying.

    I'm willing to drive 2 to 2-1/2 hours to pick them up. Since shipping is so hard on them, it would be nice to find some that I can physically transport myself.

    Thanks!

    If you go to the Ameraucana Breeders Club site, there is a breeders directory. I counted 5 people in PA on the list. [​IMG]

    Everyone needs to remember that just because the mother lays a beautiful blue egg does not mean the chick will.
    I hatch out over 300 a year and get tons of off color layer out of mother hens that lay a beautiful sky blue egg
