The Ameraucana breed was developed in the United States from chickens imported from Peru. They should not be confused with the “Easter Egger” as the Ameraucana is a pure breed. This breed of chicken has a very quiet and calm personality and will be sure to attract attention to your flock with its full beard and muffs. They are excellent layers of blue eggs. It’s always fun when selling eggs to add a few of these irresistible blue eggs to your basket. As with other “blue breeds”, the blue trait does not breed true. In addition to blue, you could receive black.
