I have a couple of young ameraucana cockerels that are black. They are gorgeous!
Unfortunately I am in Middle TN. I'm not sure how we would get him to you. Shipping is generally prohibitively expensive.
This line of ameraucanas is very mellow. My two grown roos are almost two now and I haven't had any trouble from either one. They are gentle to their girls and are great flock protectors. I can walk right next to either one with no problems. The times I have had to pick them up for maintenance they have been unhappy about it, but have not bitten or flogged me. This younger lot are mostly scared of me (which I find to be helpful as they go through adolescence!). I imagine they will be a lot like their daddy in temperament.
My original birds came from the Gardner line and the Riddick line. These boys are a mix of the two. They are pure ameraucana and not easter eggers. They carry the blue egg gene.
If it ever quits raining I'll get out there and get some pictures for you.
Quote:Well I just bought my first Ameraucanas (they are Red, Blue, Wheat, and one looks Whitish Yellow, very beautiful birds. I think a Black Roo will be perfect, to add something special.) and Golden and Silver Laced Wayandotte's all pure bred, so it is so great you have youngsters! I have a few mixed Bantams and White Leghorns, and a couple Silkie Bantams too, initially they were bought to eat the ticks cause I had a bad case of Lymes, but now I have fallen in love. Mine are wonderful in temperament and follow me around, awww. Love the fresh eggs too, what a plus. Oh and I have 2 Pekin, 2 Cayuga, and Khakis Campbell, lol. Love those too.
My husband is off next weekend so we can make the trip then, probably Saturday. Can't wait. We are also dealing with some rain from Tropical storm Lee. yucky.
