The Ameraucana breed of chicken was developed here in the United States in the 1970s. The breed’s most striking features are their slate or black legs and the fact that they lay blue tinted eggs. Ameraucanas always have both beards and muffs. Their pea comb makes them a great bird for colder climates. They have a quiet and calm personality and will be sure to attract attention to your flock.
Ameraucana Chickens are not to be confused with Easter Eggers, as they are a pure breed and also not to be confused with Araucanas, which are rumpless and have tufts.
Average Mature Weight: Rooster 6 1/2 lbs., Hens 5 1/2 lbs.
