 Ameraucana Chickens are great all-around small farm birds. These  Ameraucanas are pure-bred and will breed true  Ameraucanas.  Ameraucanas lay beautiful blue-green eggs that add pizazz to any egg carton. These birds are shiny, with varying shades of blues and reds and black with slate-black legs. They have a pea comb.  Ameraucanas have the distinguishing facial features of fuzzy beards and muffs. Young birds may have some white or red feathering.

History: These  Ameraucanas are true pure-bred Ameraucanas; not Easter Eggers. There is a ton of mislabeling when it comes to chickens that lay blue and green eggs.  The Ameraucana is an official APA Breed although it is a rather new breed. 

Ameraucanas originated from mixed-breed, almost feral, chickens imported from Chili into the U.S. in the 1970s. So actually you could say that Ameraucanas originated from Easter Eggers. But the breed was carefully developed, retaining the great egg color, but breeding out the ear tuffs and rumplessness (no tails) of the similar, Araucana breed. Araucanas also carry a lethal gene that was undesirable to the earlier developers of the Ameraucana. The Ameraucana breed is a healthy and hearty, as well as an attractive, chicken with an easily recognizable style. Eight colors of Ameraucanas, including Black, with their beards, tails, and muffs, were admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1984.
