Most of us love our multicolored egg baskets and Meyer Hatchery is pleased to offer another option to help you achieve those basket goals. New for 2024 are Black Ameraucana Day Old Chicks. If you love the friendly nature of the Blue, Splash, or Lavender Ameraucanas, but want a black bird instead, we’re here to help. Maturing at 18-22 weeks, these bearded ladies with muffs and peacombs, will lay 4 to 6 medium to large, beautiful, blue eggs weekly. The clean legs of the Ameraucana will be blue or black. Read more about the Ameraucana Chicken on our Breed Spotlight over on the Meyer Hatchery Blog.
Average Mature Weight: Rooster 6 1/2 lbs., Hens 5 1/2 lbs.
