Might you have 2 or 3 hens you would part with. I am contacting you because all of my poultry people believe you have best birds. I am new to Ameraucana breed after becoming the adopted owner of a rooster who was roaming the main though fair in our town of Harrison, MI Culls would be fine as I would just like some colored eggs instead of white all the time. I am NPIP 34-646 in Michigan and will take excellent care of them. I am also 66 years old and a recent widow. Chickens are my joy. If you could help, please email me.

I think just any.  Here is the photo of the male she emailed.  Looks like the toes froze off.

Iím not sure but I might be the closest to her. I was planning on trying to hatch some large fowl blacks after our July vacation. Iíve never been super successful, however if I hatch out enough I could probably just give Linda my existing two year old hens if she wants them. I have 4 I think. Or if Linda would prefer maybe I could hatch some for her. Of course all this depends on the girls giving me enough eggs, then me being able to hatch them out.
