Ameraucana Chickens

Breed Rating (1 Reviews)


Ameraucana History

Derived from the Araucana chicken sometime in the 1970s, the Ameraucana chicken was bred to have the blue egg-laying gene of their ancestors, but to exclude the breeding difficulties of the Araucana.

Ameraucana Behaviour

They are a medium-sized breed that has gained popularity as fun and hardy birds. Ameraucanas do best if allowed to free-range, as they prefer foraging. Using chicken fencing or a chicken run would work well for this breed. They’re prized for their beautiful blue eggs – laying up to 200 per year. They’re great birds for beginners, as they are not flighty and do well in mixed flocks.

Ameraucana Varieties

Ameraucana chickens come in a variety of colors and patterns, and have pea combs. Their skin is white, but their legs may be slate or black. They don’t have the ear tufts that Araucanas display, but they have “muffs” (fluffy feathers around their cheeks) and beards.

My favorite breed so far - Randy, New York,

I have had four different breeds before I got the Ameraucana. as chicks, they were the shyest of any breed I had had. It took them a while to warm up to me. But by the time they reached adulthood, the rooster used to sit on my knee and eat mealworms out of my hand. It was the only rooster that didn’t get nasty With me. I love the fact that they are all different colors. That made it easy to individualize them and know which one was which. They are sweet and friendly, my favorite breed so far!
