    The Ameraucana breed arrived in the 1970's and is "America's Newest Breed" although they have a long history of development that started in Chile. The breeds most striking feature is the green and blue tinted legs. The Blue Ameraucanan is well tempered, gentle, and do best in free-ranging environments. It does very well in cold weather environments. They produce medium to large blue or green eggs.

Another possible choice for a "pretty" bird... but they are $4.78 a bird, so maybe not for the first time.

This old- time favorite lays brown eggs and is a popular dual- purpose breed. This breed is very friendly and does well in cold weather. Plymouth rocks have high egg production, a meaty body, a docile personality, and good hardiness all characteristics that would be a great addition to your flock! These lovely birds have black and white barred feathers, with the roosters slightly lighter in color than the hens.

Blue Wheaten Ameraucana - another breed I have reserved for next Spring's waiting list!

Lavender Orpington | Meyer Hatchery. $35/pullet is a bit too pricey from Meyer Hatchery so will be on a quest to find them a bit cheaper.

Easter Egger | Meyer Hatchery ...and I need a couple of these!!! Maybe next year.

Chase Hatchery | Very Rare and Fancy Breed. SLC Hatchery. Blue laced red wyandotte

Ameraucana...saw these at Murdoch's today...they lay turquois eggs!! I will have a half a dozen of these some day!

Looks like a patchwork quilt! What a gorgeous bird..llll

Partridge Penedesenca hen | Meyer Hatchery

Ameraucana hens. Ah ha!!! These ladies look just like my girl Reggie! Now I know what she is! She has not laid me any eggs since I have had her so I haven't seen the blues and greens...

We're raising chickens at our house! This little lady is on our list of chickens wants. She's a black copper maran. This kind of chicken lays chocolate colored eggs! Eggs can come in lots of cool colors and next year I hope to have enough chickens to get natural Easter eggs--no dyes needed!

This breed is much like the Buff Orpington in it is very calm and quiet. It is a dual-purpose breed, but are often kept for their pet-like qualities. They are also loosely feathered and look bigger then they actually are. This color of Orpington is a combination of the black and white colors. The color blue in all poultry does not breed true; they produce black and splash offspring as well as the blue color.
