WE ARE HATCHING AMERAUCANA CHICKENS IN BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA! OLD BIDDY HATCHERY HAS WHITE, BLACK, BLUE AND MIXED COLORS. THE AMERAUCANA CHICKEN WILL LAY BLUE EGGS AND ADD COLOR TO YOUR EGG BASKET!!!

AMERAUCANA CHICKENS HAVE BEAUTIFUL MUFFS ON THEIR FACES AND IS A TRAIT FROM THE ARAUCANA CHICKEN THAT THE AMERAUCANA CHICKEN IS BRED FROM BUT THE ARAUCANA IS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT BREED.

IT IS A RUMPLESS CHICKEN WITH TUFTS. BOTH THE AMERAUCANA AND THE ARAUCANA CHICKEN HAVE BLUE OR GREY LEGS DEPENDING ON WHO IS TELLING ABOUT THEM. AMERAUCANA SHOW PEOPLE AND BREEDERS SAY GREY!!!

AMERAUCANA CHICKEN
BUFF AMERAUCANA CHICKENS ARE A VERY RARE COLOR. THIS IS THE HEN.
BUFF AMERAUCANA ROOSTER
THE BUFF AMERAUCANA ROOSTER! IT HAS NO TUFTS BUT NOTICE THE MUFFS!

OLD BIDDY HATCHERY IS ALSO TRYING TO WORK INTO THE BUFF COLORED AMERAUCANA IN SPRING AND SUMMER OF 2021. WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THIS ADDITION BECAUSE THE BUFF COLOR IS SO RARE AMONG AMERAUCANA CHICKENS. WE HOPE TO BE ONE OF THE FEW HATCHERIES TO OFFER THEM OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS. IT TAKES TIME TO BUILD A FLOCK OF BREEDERS WITH THE RIGHT GENES AND BLOOD LINES BUT WE WILL BE WORKING ON IT!!! LET ME SAY RIGHT HERE THAT I DON’T LIKE BARNYARD MIX MONGRALS!!! IT COST JUST AS MUCH TO FEED A MUT AS IT DOES TO FEED A TRIED AND TRUE BREED!!! CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE!!!

MY WIFE LOVES THE AMERAUCANA CHICKENS!!!

BLACK AMERAUCANA HEN.

 

MY WIFE IS TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE AMERAUCANA CHICKENS BECAUSE SHE HAS FELL IN LOVE WITH THE BREED!!! THEY ARE A VERY DOCILE CHICKEN AND MAKE TERRIFFIC PETS. THEY ARE A BEAUTIFUL BIRD AS YOU CAN SEE AND WILL FOLLOW YOU AROUND LIKE A DOG IF THEY LIKE YOU. SHE HAS HAD A FEW THAT WOULD RIDE ON HER SHOULDER TOO!!! 

I LIKE THEM BECAUSE OF THEIR FRIENDLINESS TOO BUT I ALSO LIKE THE BLUE EGGS IN THE EGG BASKET. BUT! I THINK THE BIGGEST THING I LIKE IS THE UNUSUAL APPEARENCE AND COLORS OF THE CHICKENS THEMSELVES.

WHAT’S THE ATTRACTION TO THE AMERAUCANA CHICKEN?

THE EGG COLOR SEEMS TO BE THE FIRST ATTRACTION TO THESE BIRDS FOR MOST PEOPLE, THEN THE BEARD (MUFFS) IS THE SECOND.

THESE SEEM TO BE THE CHICKENS THAT MOST CHILDREN LIKE WHEN THEY VISIT OUT FARM AND HATCHERY. THEY SAY THAT THESE ARE THE ONES THEY CAN CATCH AND HOLD THE EASIEST AND THAT’S GREAT FOR THE KIDS.

MY FAVORITE CHICKEN BREED IS THE HERITAGE BREED RHODE ISLAND RED AND IT SEEMS MOST MEN AGREE WITH ME. CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE HERITAGE BREED RHODE ISLAND RED PAGE.

I AM A BIG FAN OF PRESERVING ANY AND ALL HERITAGE BREED FARM ANIMALS AND THE DOMINIQUE IS ALSO ONE OF MY FAVORITE BREEDS. IT IS THE OLDEST BREED OF CHICKEN IN AMERICA¬† AND IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN BROUGHT HERE BY THE PILGRIMS!!! I’M NOT SURE IF IT STILL ON THE ENDANGERED LIST OR NOT BUT IT WAS ONLY A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. WE ARE WORKING ON GETTING THEM TOO SO WE CAN HELP WITH PRESERVATION OF THE PILGRAM CHICKEN!!!

AMERAUCANA VS ARAUCANA CHICKENS

ARAUCANA CHICKEN
THE ARAUCANA CHICKEN IS RUMPLESS (NO TAIL FEATHERS) GREY LEGS, TUFTS, BUT NOT MUFFS, AND LAYS A BLUE EGG.

THE AMERAUCANA CHICKEN HAS NO TUFTS AND HAS TAIL FEATHERS. MANY PEOPLE CONFUSE THE MUFFS , WHICH GROW AROUND THE FACE FOR TUFTS. YOU CAN SEE THE TUFTS IN THIS PICTURE AND THE MUFFS IN THE PICTURE ABOVE. THIS ARTICLE WILL CLEAR UP A LOT OF CONFUSION CLICK HERE. 

WE HAVE A FEW OLIVE EGGERS MIXED IN WITH THEM RIGHT NOW BUT WE ARE TRYING TO SEPERATE THEM OUT SO WE DON’T HAVE THEM MIXED WITH THE PURE BRED AMERAUCANAS.

AMERAUCANA VS OLIVE EGGER CHICKENS

WE MAY BE PHASEING OUT THE OLIVE EGGERS EVENTUALLY OR MORE LIKELY KEEPING THEM IN A SEPERATE PEN SO WE HAVE EASTER EGGERS (AMERAUCANA CHICKENS) AND OLIVE EGGERS WHICH IS A CROSS OF AN AMERAUCANA HEN AND A BROWN EGG ROOSTER. I KNOW ROOSTERS DON’T LAY EGGS BUT THEY ARE HATCHED FROM BROWN EGGS!!!

AMERAUCANA CHICKENS
THIS IS AN OLIVE EGGER. IT HAS YELLOW LEGS, TAIL FEATHERS, NO MUFFS OR TUFTS AND LAYS AN OLIVE GREEN EGG.

OLIVE EGGERS AND AMERAUCANA CHICKENS ARE MANY TIMES CALLED ARAUCANA CHICKENS AND THEY ARE NOT!!! I SEE THEM IN FARM SUPPLY STORES INCORRECTLY NAMED ALL THE TIME ACCORDING TO SHOW PEOPLE. THERE IS SO MANY IFS, ANDS, BUTS AND ORS…WHO REALLY KNOWS?! THIS IS WHY I SAY PEOPLE SHOULD DO THEIR RESEARCH AND KNOW WHAT THEY WANT AND WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE AS WELL AS BREED CHARACTERISTICS BEFORE THEY BUY ANYTHING!!!!

 

SORRY BUT WE DO NOT TAKE CREDIT OR DEBIT CARDS!!! A MERCHANT ACCOUNT TO DO THAT COST AS MUCH AS 100 DOLLARS AND A TRANSACTION FEE EVERYTIME YOU USE IT THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE CHARGED BACK TO YOU SO TO KEEP PRICES DOWN I ONLY EXCEPT CASH!!! ATM FEES ARE MUCH CHEAPER FOR YOU!!!
