While being introduced in the 1970s, the Ameraucana breed is one of the newest breeds in America but it has become the most wanted breed in the states. Our Black Ameraucana is one of the most awarded breeds among poultry shows. It has a unique look with striking black features. They have a calm and docile nature but can be skittish around other breeds and pets. While no chicken is entirely quiet, the Ameraucana is known for being one of the more quiet breeds. This breed will begin laying later in life, around 6 months old. You can expect anywhere from 180 to 200 medium to large blue eggs from each hen annually. This more compact breed features both males and females weighing roughly the same weight. Roosters will weigh 6.5 pounds and hens will weigh 5.5 pounds. The Black Ameraucana is an APA-recognized breed (varies by color variety) and is shown in the All Other Standard Breeds (AOSB) Class. These beautiful birds live an average of 7 to 8 years. Our chicken hatchery only supplies the happiest and healthiest day-old Ameraucana chicks. Valley Hatchery wants to make the experience of raising chicks a fulfilling one. When buying chicks online with us, we will ensure your sanctification is reached.
