Easter Egg (Ameraucanas) Standard Chicken Breed Information

The "Easter Egg Chicken" originally came from Chile in South America, discovered by the Araucana Indians.  The true Araucana 
chicken is rumpless (tailless) and has a small curling tuft of feathers next to each ear. The Easter Egg Chicken (Ameraucanas) are different because they have a full beard under the beak and have a tail.  Hatchery offers for sale the Ameraucana or better described as the "Easter Egg Chicken:. Hatchery's breeding program objectives for the "Easter Egg Chickens" are: to produce chickens with a wide variety of colors, patterns, combinations of colors, with a full beard under the beak and high egg production of colorful eggs.   The color of their egg shells vary from pale blue to dark blue, to various shades of green and a few light brownish/pink eggs.  Their meat is delicious and it has a taste similar to quail.  We do not offer a specific color variety of this breed; however, we do breed for a wide variety of colors.
