Our Ameraucana

I think I am slowly going to be phasing out 
my Buff Orpingtons, unless I have a lot
of continued interest in them.
I really love the breed but I can't have many
different breeds as I want to continue
to allow my birds to free range
completely during the day.
So I may decide to just get rid of 
all of my Buff roosters and keep
a few hens around for the eggs. 
What I am moving toward are
the Ameraucana.
I really love the color choices in this breed.
I am a sucker for blue birds and I can have
my blue birds with the Ameraucana,
and I can also have blue eggs!
Right now I have a few lavender and I am 
hatching out and have a few growing out in the brooder of 
the Blue Wheaten and Wheaten Ameraucana.
I really love the colors on these birds.

Updated Photos on My Serama!

I finally had some time to get some updated pictures of
the birds I have this year. 
These are the birds my hatching eggs come from,
so if you are interested in getting eggs from me
these are the birds they all come from.
I really don't have that many birds,
only 16 actually!
The birds photographed are done so according to 
the pen they come from, 
so the birds are pictured with their mates.
I try to write which pen the eggs came out of
so if you get eggs with letters on them
you will know who the parents are.
The pens are labeled alphabetically.

Pen D Birds:

Pen C Birds:

Pen B Birds:

Pen A Birds:

I hope you enjoyed checking out my birds!
Happy hatching and have a great year!
