Ameraucanas Chicken (pullets)
Originally from Chile, in South America, they are called the Easter egg fowl. They lay colored eggs: blue, green, pink, and olive drab. These birds vary in size and color, some may have whiskers and others muffs of feathers that cover their ears. Their eggs are reported to have more nutritional value than ordinary eggs.
Turned out to be my favortesI purchased 12 chicks in 2012. Every 2 years I ad to my flock with a different breed to keep track of the age of the hens. I still have 7 of these, 3 of which were taken by predators, 2 died of illness. The Araucanas still outnumber the other breeds in my flock, of which I purchased a dozen in 2014, and 2016. And they are still laying! The number of blue eggs per day outweighs the brown (other breeds), including Austrolops, which were suppose to be great egg layers . The New Hampshires I purchased this year aren't laying yet, but we'll see. next bunch I order will be the Araucanas.. And from Mt. Healthy. Love them.
Happy New Chick MommaI placed my order for chicks last week and selected a ship date of 5/16. Customer service called me the next morning to confirm all my chosen breeds would be available for the ship date. Yesterday morning I got a call from my post office letting my chicks had a arrived. They were healthy and vocal! I counted everyone and quickly got them into their brooder and realized that I had an extra little fluff in the group! I am happy to report they are all thriving and active. Will continue to use Mt Healthy to add to my flock in the future.
Amazing Company to order fromWe ordered 150 chickens from Mt. Healthy, and couldn't be happier. We received 172 chickens including the 50 free ones. 171 arrived alive, and only 2 died during the first 2 weeks. 169 out of 150 ordered is an amazing stat. These birds are beautiful and everyone who has purchased from us loves them. Please don't hesitate to order from them. Great price and beautiful chickens.
