BBF breeds and offers only authentic heritage ameraucana chickens. We keep all colour varieties separate. Breezy Bird Farms self imported new color varieties in 2017.

These sweet and docile birds also sport a pea comb and very small waddles which makes winter keeping easier in our Canadian climate. Ameraucana chickens have a beautiful curved beak, large eyes, and a red “pea” comb. This pea comb, together with the wattles and the round earlobes, should be red. birds can be used for Dual purpose as well as egg layers. Although in todays world, they are mainly kept for pets and eggs. These birds are not flighty and tend to be underfoot. They are vocal and curious of humans.
Ameraucana were developed in America in the 1970's from the Araucana breed. Hens lay up to 250 eggs per year. Weight ranges from 4.5 lbs to 6.5 lbs. These muffed birds also have beards.
