Brief History

The Ameraucana was developed in the United States in the 1970s from Araucana chickens brought from Chile. It was bred to retain the unusual blue-egg gene of the Araucana, but eliminate the tufted and rumpless lethal alleles of the parent breed. … The name derives from “America” and “Araucana”.

My Flocks

I am working on breeding to the Ameraucana LF standard, my goal is to produce as many show quality chickens as possible by selectively breeding them.  So far I only have 4 show quality adults, I am hoping once my blues are grown out I will have some to add to that coop.  So far my tiny flock consists of Clif Redden birds with 1 Paul Smith hen. The above image is of my Clif Redden rooster, he is stunning, he was in a show but sadly another rooster attacked him and broke part of his beak, though it doesn’t affect his breeding, he may not place as high in a show due to the chipped beak.

I do also have a small, free ranged, flock of nice quality, but not quite show worthy, birds that I am breeding and selling the chicks of.  They are a mix of BBS with a blue rooster.  The above image is of my blue rooster, K’ahless, he is a lovely, sweet boy, his comb is a bit too big to breed for showing, and he is a bit bleached out from spending lots of time in the sun, but he makes beautiful chicks!!
