Ameraucana chickens from McMurray Hatchery is known for laying consistently blue eggs. The breed gets in name from the Indian tribe of Chile where these chickens were first discovered. Our Ameraucana chickens are multi-colored, beautiful chickens known for their ability to lay colored eggs of shades varying from turquoise to blue. Each bird will typically lay a different shade of colored egg that will add variety and color to your egg basket.
Adult Ameraucanas are medium-sized with pea combs, and each is a different combination of colors and color patterns. Order several of these chickens to make an absolutely beautiful laying flock that is extremely hardy.
Baby chicks come in all colors — plain and fancy — just like the adults. This is a unique breed and great fun to have when the blue eggs start coming in.
Our flock has some Araucana and some Ameraucana breeding mixed, and consequently are recommended for egg-laying color and ability, not for exhibition.
