The Ameraucana Bantams were developed in the United States in the 1970s. The breed’s most striking features are their slate or black legs and the fact that they lay blue-tinted eggs. Ameraucana Bantams have both beards and muffs. Their pea comb and clean legs make them great birds for colder climates. Ameraucana Bantams typically have quiet and calm personalities. You can expect 3-5 small blue eggs per week from these hens.
Splash Ameraucana bantam chickens were only recently added to the Standard of Perfection by the American Bantam Association in 2022.
