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.
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. 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 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.
