Bantam Ameraucana Pullet A

Bantam Ameraucana Pullet A was blessed with breathtaking colors. She is more than a keeper. I have not investigated showing chickens, so I am not sure if she is of that quality. But, she is a prize to me at the least!

There is actually a lot of interest in livestock shows, especially those that exhibit chickens. I wish I were not limited by my neck injury, or I would drive to shows all over the state. I know it sounds odd to your average Joe, but once you keep chickens, you can get addicted to the whole experience.

Bantam Ameraucana Pullet A - Head Shot

We purchased a Bantam Ameraucana hen that came with 5 biddies (chicks). This terrible hot weather has been taking its toll. We lost some of our birds including three of these chicks.

But, the two that made it past the critical stage are turning out to be real beauties. Unluckily, we do not have a cockerel or rooster of this type. And so, the search continues to add fill-ins to our flock.
