All our hens are between 5-8 months old and just reaching their laying age. Hens can lay for up to 4-5 years before they stop all together. Hens need up to 14 hours of sunlight to lay. Artificial lighting can be added to keep hens laying through the winter months when the sunlight is less. Fun fact - hens are born with an exact number of eggs she will lay in her life time, so even if she stops laying through the winter months, that just means she will be laying that much longer before she stops.
The Ameraucana 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 6½ lbs., Hens 5½ lbs.
